In 2020, Namibia had a total population of approximately 2.5 million people. In that same year, an estimated 12,000 people developed TB. Among them, 1,400 were children. Moreover, there were 5,491 missing people with TB (756 were children).
In 2017, Delft Imaging delivered an EasyPortable chest X-ray system with a battery pack and portable lead shielding. The EasyPortable digital X-ray system also came with the CAD4TB artificial intelligence software, automatically detecting TB-related abnormalities on chest X-rays. The project included training and installation services on the ground. The solutions and services were procured via the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). Later that same year, an additional EasyPortable X-ray system and the artificial intelligence software CAD4TB were procured for the TB program in Namibia.
In 2022, we delivered a Delft Light portable backpack X-ray system to the country to support the screening and triage for TB in the remotest corners of Namibia. The system came with the CAD4TB software, and the project included installation, training and long-term maintenance services.
