qXR detects abnormal chest X-rays, then identifies and localizes upto 29 common abnormalities. It also screens for tuberculosis.

**In the US, FDA 510(k) clearance only for facilitating confirmation of the position of the breathing tube, automated cardiothoracic ratio measurements, enhanced lung nodule detection, and triage of pneumothorax and pleural effusion.**
