Intended Use Statements
Intended use (according to CE) ClearRead Xray | Bone Suppress is indicated to generate an enhanced, secondary digital radiographic image of the chest. The enhanced AP or PA image of the chest provides improved visibility of the lung parenchyma through bone suppression and tissue equalization, and may facilitate discerning the presence or absence of nodules. The Bone Suppress image provides adjunctive information and is not a substitute for the original PA/AP image. This device is intended to be used by trained professionals, such as physicians, radiologists, and technicians, on patients at risk of having lung nodules and is not intended to be used on pediatric patients.
