By JAMES ALEXANDERICHONGQING|Nov 18,2022

Chongqing– An international training course focused on technology applied in ultrasound therapy for tumors recently opened in Malaysia, with participation from the State Key Laboratory (SKL) of Ultrasound in Medicine and Engineering of Chongqing, an institute renowned both at home and abroad in this field.

Professor Wang Zhibiao, director of SKL, has devoted himself to researching such technology for over three decades. Among his many achievements, his team made world breakthroughs in core technology focused on ultrasound ablation surgery for tumors. It developed the ‘Haifu Knife,’ the first large-scale medical device with intellectual property rights exclusive to China.

These cutting-edge technologies have provided a wide range of medical applications. According to Professor Wang, this ultrasound therapy can treat the body externally without surgery, causing less injury. The Haifu Knife has been used to treat more than 200,000 tumor patients in almost 30 nations across Europe, Russia, and Japan.

Liu Hua, a high-level researcher from the International Cooperation Department of the Ministry of Science and Technology, stated online during an opening speech for the course that “Focused ultrasound ablation is an innovative technology that has transformed medical treatment from highly invasive to non-invasive surgery. Furthermore, this revolutionary advancement has made it widely accessible.”

Industry insiders expect applications of this technology are not limited to malignant tumors but will develop into a new industry for treating benign tumors and other non-tumor-related diseases.

According to reports on November 15, 2022, clinicians participating in the course come from 11 countries, including Indonesia, Egypt, Ethiopia, Singapore, Malaysia, and Germany, while expert teachers come from the UK, China, Malaysia, and other countries. The International Conference on Minimally and Non-invasive Medicine will also be held concurrently in Malaysia.
