In 2022, Delft Imaging delivered a Delft Light portable backpack X-ray system to the Ministry of Health and Medical Services in the Solomon Islands. As a remote island, the Delft Light portable backpack X-ray system is ideally suited to support TB screening in remote areas. In the same project, the CAD4TB artificial intelligence software was delivered, which will help the automated detection of TB-related abnormalities on the chest X-rays made throughout the project. To ensure a successful delivery, installation and training services were provided.
