Lunit said it has signed a contract with FujiFilm Thailand and Microsoft to deliver its artificial intelligence-based screening solutions to Bumrungrad International Hospital in Bangkok, Thailand.
Under the agreement, Lunit will provide Lunit INSIGHT CXR, a Conformite Europeenne (CE)-marked AI software for chest X-ray analysis, and Lunit INSIGHT MMG, a US Food and Drug Administration-approved AI solution for breast cancer detection in early stages, to hospital in Thailand.
Lunit and FujiFilm Thailand plan to deliver the solutions to Bumrungrad Hospital using Microsoft Azure, a global cloud computing platform.
The only Thai hospital to be named one of the “World’s Best Hospitals 2022” by Newsweek, Bumrungrad is one of the largest private hospitals in Southeast Asia, with 580 beds and treating 1.1 million patients a year from more than 190 different countries.
During a trial run, the hospital used Lunit AI solutions in its check-ups, intensive care units and emergency rooms. With the recent contract, the hospital plans to use Lunit INSIGHT CXR and Lunit INSIGHT MMG to analyze more than 100,000 medical images taken annually at the hospital, Lunit said.
With Lunit’s AI, Bumrungrad wants to provide better services by detecting breast abnormalities and breast cancer in a timely manner. Lunit plans to further support Bumrungrad to drive groundbreaking medical innovation in Southeast Asia.
“We are excited to introduce our AI solutions to Bumrungrad, which strives for healthier lives for patients,” said Suh Beom-seok, CEO of Lunit. “Going forward, we plan to expand the scope of our global partnership to allow more diverse medical institutions and patients to experience Lunit products directly.”
Teeradache Viangteeravat, director of research and development at Bumrungrad International Hospital, said: “In the medical sector, AI will become a tool to support decision-making by medical professionals.”
Bumrungrad Hospital, in partnership with Lunit, a global leader in medical AI, will continue to provide high-quality medical services tailored to the needs of medical staff and patients.
