COVID-19 has affected almost every country in the world, and its spread has left people struggling with new measures to contain this virus. See how Lunit INSIGHT CXR has been helping healthcare systems around the world combat this pandemic.


Vimercate Hospital, Italy

Vimercate Hospital is based in Lombardia, Italy, and takes around 160,000 radiology exams a year with 17 radiologists and 19 technicians.

In March 2020, when the pandemic hit Italy, Vimercate Hospital deployed Lunit INSIGHT CXR. Dr. Marcello Intotero, Head of Radiology Structure and Diagnostic Services Department, said, “The COVID-19 crisis has brought a need to improve our reading workflow by easing the burden of reading a mass amount of exams.”

Lunit INSIGHT CXR is used for every chest x-ray analysis, including ER patients with respiratory symptoms, patients with COVID-19.

Dr. Intotero said, “With the Lunit AI results integrated into the Fujifilm Synapse platform, we can quickly identify severe cases. In particular, prioritizing exams according to the AI scores on the worklist helps us report immediately for patients with findings. This seamless integration helps us streamline our reading workflow in the radiology department, as well as respond to the pandemic more efficiently at the hospital level.”


PreventSenior Hospital, Brazil

PreventSenior, one of the largest hospital networks in Brazil with eight locations throughout the metropolitan region of Sao Paulo. The institution is one of the COVID-19 detection centers that use chest x-ray screening for patients with mild symptoms.

Dr. Fabrício Próspero Machado in the radiology department said, “Our hospital is overflowing with patients, while the number of radiologists remains low. Lunit INSIGHT CXR is providing great help, especially for patient triage and monitoring.”
