CAD4Silicosis is an artificial intelligence software, which assists users to detect silicosis. It is the only AI tool that is able to ‘select either silicosis or silicotuberculosis among no-silicosis chest radiographs (CXRs) (normal and TB)’ and, scores a digital X-ray image between 0 and 100. The same interface used of our CAD4TB (Computer-Aided Detection for Tuberculosis) software, is being used for the CAD4Silicosis. The demo can be viewed at

CAD4Silicosis has also recently been tested, in a study that performed very well, on images of mineworkers in South Africa. The full report has been published in the International Journal of TB and Lung Diseases.
