South Korean medical AI company Lunit has recently secured deals with hospitals in Europe, where the medical device market – the second largest after the North American market – is worth $155 billion.

It won the contract to supply a lung disease screening solution to TeleDiag, the largest teleradiology group in France. 

Lunit was also chosen to provide a mammography analysis solution to the central region branch of the Liga Portuguesa Contra o Cancro (Portuguese League Against Cancer), which oversees Portugal’s national breast cancer screening programme. The organisation aims to use Lunit’s AI to analyse about 100,000 mammograms annually for the next three years. 

Another Korean company, Coreline Soft, bagged contracts in Europe to supply its AI screening software.

Following a competitive bidding process, it will provide the University Hospital Lausanne in Switzerland with its flagship product, AVIEW LCS Plus, which uses AI to identify lung nodules, pulmonary emphysema, and coronary artery calcification in chest X-rays. 

The same software is also being implemented in the respective lung disease research of two French hospitals, the Bichat–Claude Bernard Hospital under Europe’s largest hospital system, Assistance Publique–Hôpitaux de Paris, and the private, not-for-profit Foch Hospital in Suresnes, a commune in western Paris.

Hospital del Mar, a general hospital in Barcelona, Spain, is also adopting Coreline’s AI screening tool for its clinical research on lung cancer. The hospital is part of the European lung cancer screening project, 4-In-The-Lung-Run, of which Coreline is also a technology partner.
