BEIJING -- Imsight Technology, a Chinese company that has been developing equipment for digital radiographic examinations of the chest since 2018, has devised an artificial intelligence system to assist computer-aided tomographic diagnostic screening of the lungs amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
