Most countries where TB is widespread are resource-constrained; its prevalence tends to be higher in countries with lower per-capita GDP. It is, therefore, not surprising that one of the main reasons TB incidences have not significantly decreased is the lack of simple, effective and inexpensive ways to detect new TB cases at an early stage. While the only way to diagnose TB is with tests, they are usually high-cost.
Delft Imaging has solved the TB detection challenge by combining low-cost, quick digital X-rays with deep learning and remote expertise. It’s called CAD4TB (Computer-Aided Detection for Tuberculosis). CAD4TB takes PA Chest X-ray as input, and produces abnormality score (0-100) and heatmap as output. if TB is likely present in a patient, a follow-up test such as GeneXpert can be administered. This way, a patient can be diagnosed and treated within one day. Subject age is 4 years or above.
Our in-house expertise ranges from software development, engineering to public health and international business developers. Altogether, this diverse range of expertise is what has allowed us to screen over 6 million people in 40 countries through our tuberculosis-focused projects. We wish to apply our market knowledge and expertise into other areas of point of care diagnostics in developing countries.
