– Lunit INSIGHT suite, Lunit’s AI-driven solutions for early detection of cancer, featured in CancerX’s first official project: enhancing equity and reducing financial burden in cancer care
SEOUL, South Korea, Nov. 13, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Lunit (KRX:328130.KQ), a leading provider of AI-powered solutions for cancer diagnostics and therapeutics, today announced its collaboration with CancerX in its groundbreaking first project. As a founding member of CancerX, Lunit is at the forefront of a digital revolution aimed at enhancing equity and alleviating the financial burden in cancer care and research.
CancerX has recently announced a set of resources for its inaugural project, aiming to harness the power of digital innovation to minimize the gap in cancer care access and reduce the financial impact of cancer.
Among these resources for health system executives and providers is a solutions catalog, which features 14 fit-for-purpose tools that bolster the implementation of a digital strategy. The catalog covers three critical areas of cancer care: screening+diagnosis, treatment+end-of-life care, and survivorship.
Lunit’s flagship product, the AI-powered Lunit INSIGHT suite, is featured as a leading solution in the screening and diagnosis category of the solutions catalog.
The Lunit INSIGHT suite, which includes Lunit INSIGHT CXR for chest x-ray image analysis and Lunit INSIGHT MMG for mammogram analysis, uses AI to detect lesions suspicious of chest abnormalities and breast cancer with 96-99% accuracy. The suite also has demonstrated a 20% increase in early diagnosis detection, a 40% reduction in reading time, and a notable 30% decrease in recall rates. These transformative advancements hold the potential to alleviate the financial strain on patients and signal a leap forward in reshaping the landscape of cancer care.
“The harsh reality is that nearly half of all cancer patients in the US exhaust their life savings on treatment. This is an immense burden that patients have to bear,” said Brandon Suh, CEO of Lunit. “As a founding member of CancerX, we are excited to have the opportunity to contribute to addressing financial toxicity and ensuring access to quality care for all. By leveraging our AI-powered solutions, we aim to bring about positive changes for patients and healthcare institutions as we tackle this challenge head-on.”
Lunit joined the CancerX initiative as a founding member in June 2023 and has been actively involved since the first official meeting in early September.
