Cutting-edge medical technology from South Korea
VUNO Inc., a leading medical AI technology company from South Korea, presented VUNO Med®-Chest X-ray™ technology, a chest X-ray that can read lung abnormalities by analyzing data from a large database of abnormalities, which can be used to support medical diagnosis, especially serious diseases such as lung cancer, tuberculosis, pneumonia, etc. VUNO Med®-Chest X-ray™ software can deliver x-ray results according to the needs of doctors or patients in many ways.
Additionally there is VUNO Med®-BoneAge™, which can estimate the bone age from X-ray images of a patient’s hand, by comparing with the bone age database of the age group closest to the patient in order to more accurately diagnose problems and plan for treatment.
Then there is SurgLive technology, which integrates surgical video database to be used for medical studies of real-time remote surgery via live broadcast by MTEG, South Korea.
