Fujifilm Australia implements Annalise’s CXR decision support solutions

Healthcare AI company has partnered with Fujifilm Australia to deliver decision support solutions for mobile and stationary chest radiographs.

Annalise CXR Edge is a medical device-like software that assists clinicians and radiologists in interpreting chest X-rays. According to the company, its AI algorithm identifies and communicates suspect findings in less than 10 seconds.

Two variants of Annalize CXR Edge will be made available to healthcare providers in Australia: one is the Comprehensive Annalize CXR Edge Comp, which can detect 95 clinical findings and is suitable for settings inpatient, outpatient, and emergency care, and the other edition, Annalize CXR Edge Critical Care, uncovering 35 relevant findings in trauma, emergency, and intensive care settings.

The Annalize CXR Edge will be available in select Fujifilm models globally, subject to regulatory approvals. It has been registered for clinical use in Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and India, and is approved for use as a medical device in the European Union.


Surein Fernando, Fujifilm Australia’s ANZ Medical Director, notes the rise of mobile devices for chest imaging. Such devices now have “a more important role in radiology and radiology departments,” he said.

“With the growing number of patients, clinicians are under pressure to make faster decisions, and we believe this ideal partnership will bring a step forward.”[d] He emphasized.

With the ability to detect up to 95 detections, Annalize CXR Edge can also assist with early identification of important findings that can easily be missed. According to, about 9 out of 10 missed diagnoses of lung cancer are due to faulty interpretation of chest X-ray.

Meanwhile, Fujifilm Australia said it will send two of its Annalize CXR Edge-equipped portable X-ray machines to Tonga and Palau for COVID-19 response assistance.


Last February, introduced Annalize Enterprise, which provides healthcare providers with a comprehensive set of AI modules, including a chest X-ray solution that can be detected 124 detections. Its latest CXR Edge uses an AI model developed from Enterprise CXR’s model, trained using more than 800,000 images.

Among early adopters, Australia’s diagnostic imaging provider Sound image started rolling out Annalise Enterprise CXR across 100 radiology clinics last September.
