Background

Insuffieient in the number of radiologists

Now that the general health checkup items by law include a check X-ray examination for lung cancer screening, the majority of people in Japan periodically undergo a check X-ray examination, which is affordable and low radiation risk. However, identifying findings suggestive of lung nodules from chest X-rays is not that easy and requires high skill, seasoned experience, and concentration. Each interpretation has to be prompt because of the far larger number of examinations against the number of radiologists. Non-specialized radiologists and doctors who are not experienced being forced to read and interpret is yet another problem.

Make the most of the medical checkup opportunity

The fact that medical chekups are pretty common in Japan, is the biggest advantage in terms of backing up the medical space in Japan.
Hence, LPIXEL believes fostering and leveraging this opportunity will go a long way toward primary care.

Main Features

Image Interpretation Support

EIRL lung nodule supports the interpretation process by identifying findings suggestive of lung nodules from chest X-rays that are larger than 5 mm and smaller than 30 mm. The sensitivity of the specialized-rasiologist and the non-specialized radiologist interpreting the images with the software increased by 9.9% and 13.1 % respectively, suggesting an improvement in diagnostic accuracy.

Seamless Integration with PACS and Modalities

With its compatibility with DICOM, which is the universal format for image storage and transfer, image data can be sent and received with the pre-existing PACS and modalities installed in the hospital system. This seamless workflow allows for the analysis results to be delivered straight to the radiologist’s workstation.
