The tool is specifically designed to aid physicians in reviewing posteroanterior chest radiographs in adults for nodules 10 mm to 30 mm in size. The program is part of S-Station, the operating software installed on Samsung's digital x-ray imaging systems and includes an autorun option that automatically performs nodule detection after chest x-ray imaging.

In international clinical trials, ALND achieved a sensitivity of at least 80% identifying lung cancer in 600 chest x-rays, the company said.
