SEOUL, South Korea, Feb. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- JLK Inspection Inc., a Korean company specializing in Artificial Intelligence based medical analysis solutions, has announced a recent signing of an agreement with the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) in Lao PDR, a US based INGO on 12th of February to support the Lao PDR NTC in strengthening and expanding access to tuberculosis screening via AI enabled CXR reading.
JLK Inspection was officially selected as the partner by CHAI on behalf of the Lao PDR NTC in December 2019 with its product, called 'JLD-02K', supporting clinicians to make diagnoses more effectively. JLK Inspection will be starting the project with NTC and CHAI in Lao PDR on February 20.
JLK Inspection's "JLD-02K" is an AI-based lung disease analysis solution, providing convenience to the clinicians while also supporting higher precision of analysis. By using the solution, it is expected to help address the problem of low radiologist capacity while also cutting down the expense of the screening.

We look forward to further exploring the overseas market."
