"Lunit’s flagship products have now received 510(k) clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), for 'Lunit INSIGHT CXR Triage', an AI-powered chest x-ray triaging solution, and 'Lunit INSIGHT MMG', an AI solution for breast cancer detection. We will continue to do our best to provide innovative solutions in the field of computer-aided imaging and treatment using AI." said Brandon Suh, CEO of Lunit.
Through an evidence-based approach, the CB Insights research team selected the Digital Health 150 from a pool of over 11,000 companies, including applicants and nominees. They were chosen based on several factors, including data submitted by the companies, company business models and momentum in the market, and Mosaic scores, CB Insights’ proprietary algorithm that measures the overall health and growth potential of private companies.
