Lunit, a leading medical AI software company, will present its latest and most up-to-date AI software for radiology—Lunit INSIGHT CXR and Lunit INSIGHT MMG—at the upcoming RSNA 2019. The products are installed globally for clinical use in Mexico, UAE, China, Thailand, Taiwan, and South Korea. Lunit is one of the leaders and pioneers in digital healthcare, selected by CB Insights as one of the "Digital Health 150" companies this year.

Up-to-date AI technology for chest and breast radiology

During RSNA 2019, Lunit will be presenting the latest version of its AI solution for chest x-ray, Lunit INSIGHT CXR—which had gained CE mark recently—and for mammography, Lunit INSIGHT MMG. The software has been first introduced in RSNA 2017 and 2018 respectively.

According to Lunit, the chest x-ray software product has been highlighted recently in major publications such as Radiology, Scientific Reports, and JAMA Open Network. The publications validate the performance of the chest radiography algorithm (Lunit INSIGHT CXR) as well as its clinical value in an emergency department and TB screening setting.

The algorithm for breast cancer detection, Lunit INSIGHT MMG, has also displayed top-level performance in the detection of breast cancer, upon multiple reader studies. "The studies show that when the readers use our software, it lead to an increase in breast cancer detection by 24%," said Hyo-Eun Kim, PhD, Head of Breast Radiology at Lunit. "This shows that our product can provide tangible benefits to both physicians and patients, detecting more breast cancer and reducing invasive, unnecessary biopsies."

Quickly evolving to meet the field's needs—Lunit INSIGHT "a safety net"

Merely 1-2 years since its launching, Lunit AI software system has gone through major improvements—not only in its algorithmic performance but also in user compatibilities such as user interface and report generation, to facilitate better workflow.

"We have conducted on-site interviews with our customers all throughout the year," said Minhong Jang, Chief Business Officer of Lunit. "We listen to what they have to say, both the positive and the negative comments, and align with their needs to make the product useful and helpful for the radiologists in the field."

Since the beginning of the year until recently, the company saw an increase in the number of images analyzed with commercially installed Lunit INSIGHT in a clinical setting. With installations in multiple global sites, Lunit INSIGHT products are quickly expanding its presence in the international market.
