    Published on December 1, 2022

    DeepTek.ai, a leading health tech startup in the Radiology AI space has launched its AI-powered Public Health Screening Platform – Genki, and AI-orchestrated Radiology Platform Augmento – Cloud PACS, in Kenya along with the distribution partner for Kenya, Diagnosol Africa Limited.

    Genki analyzes Chest X-Rays within a minute to automatically triage TB suspects. Only the suspects triaged positive are sent for further confirmatory molecular tests. This reduces the need for expensive molecular tests and brings down the overall costs.TB is among the top five diseases and a leading cause of death in Kenya. In 2022 alone, Kenya recorded 21000 deaths due to TB. Empowering the healthcare system against this deadly epidemic and early detection is crucial to prevent and eradicate TB.

    Genki has “end to end workflow” which ushers in the much-needed last-mile approach in bridging the gaps in disease elimination. It seamlessly integrates with mobile X-ray units to ensure instant triaging / pre-screening and making imaging assessment, diagnosis, and reporting seamless even in the remotest part of the world. Genki has also been used for various Public Health Screening initiatives in Mongolia, Philippines and Thailand.

    DeepTek’s AI-powered Cloud PACS platform – Augmento, will help Physicians, Radiologists, and Technicians working from different locations to smoothly and seamlessly communicate with each other – reducing the potential risk of inaccurate diagnosis.
