In 2000, Niger still had an incidence of tuberculosis of 191 per 100,000 people. Over the two decades that followed, that number steeply declined. In 2021, TB in Niger is 79 per 100,000 people.
In 2022, Delft Imaging delivered a Delft Light portable backpack X-ray system to Niger to support the screening and triage of tuberculosis within the country. The Delft Light came with the CAD4TB artificial intelligence software, automatically detecting TB-related abnormalities on chest X-ray images. The project came with the relevant installation, training and maintenance services.
