Currently, we are working on technology development for lesion candidate detection such as lung cancer, unruptured cerebral aneurysm, etc. This technology leads to a reduction of oversight of lesion candidates and efficiency improvement in image interpretation. Our development encompasses technologies to automate lesion size measurement and report creation and aims for practical application of overall image interpretation support in the future.
