Vuno, a company developing medical software, said Tuesday that it would supply its artificial intelligence-based chest X-ray solution, ‘VUNO Med-Chest X-ray’, to the National Centre for Communicable Diseases of Mongolia.
Mongolia’s health authorities requested the World Health Organisation (WHO) to purchase Vuno’s AI solutions to meet the country’s increasing demand for lung and chest diseases, including COVID-19, and introduced it to the nation.
The VUNO Med-Chest X-ray can detect abnormal findings, such as nodule, fibrosis, pneumothorax in chest images, assisting healthcare providers to lesions in a clear image.
The new product helps medical experts improve the diagnostic efficacy by providing an initial reading of the patient’s chest images and report abnormal findings, allowing healthcare givers to quickly follow-up with treatment, the company said.
Mongolia’s National Centre for Communicable Diseases was established in 2001 to manage, prevent, monitor, diagnose, and treat patients with infectious diseases in the country. It conducted the clinical trials of Vuno’s AI-based solution for sexually transmitted diseases in 2017, and introduced it to the country’s hospitals.
