SEOUL, South Korea, Nov. 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — lunit (KRX: 328130.KQ), a leading medical AI provider serving more than 1,000 sites worldwide, today announced that it has signed a contract to provide its AI solution for the State BreastScreen NSW (BSNSW), managed by the Cancer Institute NSW (New South Wales Cancer Agency). Lunit’s selection as the program’s provider marks the first instance in the world in which an AI-based solution is deployed by a national cancer screening organization.
In 2021, Cancer Institute NSW solicited proposals and test results from potential vendors for the supply, execution and/or delivery of a state-of-the-art BreastScreen machine reading solution, based on the latest generation of technology deep machine learning AI for detecting cancers during screening. mammograms. Lunit INSIGHT MMG, an AI solution for mammography analysis, was named the preferred solution for this project.
BSNSW is part of the national BreastScreen Australia programme, which is jointly funded by the Commonwealth and state and territory governments with the aim of improving survival rates for women with breast cancer. The service aims to detect breast cancer early by offering free mammograms to women aged 40 and over.
Phase 1 of the BSNSW Machine Reading Project will validate the Lunit INSIGHT MMG solution to confirm potential clinical benefits prior to operational deployment. Lunit’s AI solution will analyze and validate approximately 650,000 mammograms against historical reports provided by BSNSW radiologists.
Phase 2 will perform prospective validation of Lunit INSIGHT MMG in the planned workflow by evaluating approximately 240,000 exams over an 8-month period. The results will be analyzed alongside the reports from the radiologists to ensure an optimal integrated and secure workflow.
In phase 3, operational deployment will see the Lunit INSIGHT MMG solution integrated into the BSNSW PACS environment, assisting radiologists with all screening exams for approximately 350,000 women per year. During this final phase, additional evaluations will be conducted to validate Lunit INSIGHT DBT, an AI solution for digital breast tomosynthesis, for clinical use.
Upon successful completion of all three phases, Lunit will be awarded a 5-year operational contract with BSNSW, which should further secure supply and operations across Australia.
