In 2020, the population of Guinea-Bissau totalled approximately 2 million people. That same year, there were an estimated 71,00 people who developed TB. Among them, 2,300 were children. Moreover, there were 4,557 missing people with TB (818 were children).
In 2022, Delft Imaging delivered three Delft Light backpack X-ray systems to CECOME (Central de Compras de Medicamentos Essenciais). Each portable X-ray system also had the CAD4TB artificial intelligence software, automatically detecting TB-related abnormalities on chest X-rays. Moreover, the project included the required installation, training and after-sales services. Later, the project procured X-ray films to print the digital images.
