Enlitic nabs Japan's OK for chest x-ray AI

2017 03 09 14 05 24 948 Chest Lung Xray 400

Imaging artificial intelligence (AI) technology developer Enlitic, in collaboration with Konica Minolta and Marubeni, has received approval from Japanese regulators for its AI software for analyzing chest x-rays.

Enlitic is the first U.S. imaging AI company to receive regulatory approval to commercialize in Japan, according to the firm. Its CXR-AI software detects major abnormal findings such as lung nodules and consolidation in chest x-ray images, and these abnormalities are shown as a simple mark.

Konica Minolta's PACS and AI gateway systems will deploy CXR-AI so that it's distributed across hospitals, clinics, and other medical institutions in Japan. Marubeni will also facilitate the commercialization of CXR-AI through other channels in Japan.
