What challenges do you have to tackle moving forward?
贵公司接下来必需面对哪些挑战?
Speaking of cancer treatment, people often refer to surgery, cancer medication, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy or CAR-T treatment, which is now the focus of attention, but few people know that HIFU can also be applied to the field of cancer treatment. Through the transformation of modern surgical concept "from invasive to minimally invasive, and then to noninvasive," we hope that more and more medical experts can adopt HIFU technology and eventually make HIFU the mainstream cancer treatment and standard care.
当我们谈到肿瘤治疗的时候,人们通常能想到的治疗方法往往是外科手术治疗、药物治疗、放化疗或者是如今备受关注的CAR-T治疗,但是很少有人能想到,迅速发展的HIFU治疗技术也已经应用到了肿瘤治疗领域。随着现代手术观念“从有创到微创、再到无创”的转变,我们希望越来越多的专家认可HIFU技术,成为主流的肿瘤癌症治疗方式。

Tell us about your clinical studies and the results.
请告诉我们贵公司的临床研究和结果。
We have carried out clinical cooperation with well-known hospitals, such as Huadong Hospital Affiliated to Fudan University, Sun Yat-sen University Hospital, Zhongshan Hospital Affiliated to Fudan University, Huashan Hospital Affiliated to Fudan University, Henan Cancer Hospital, and Xinjiang Uygur Municipal People's Hospital. Using Huadong Hospital Affiliated to Fudan University as an example, it has completed more than 20,000 HIFU treatments; the number of treatments, safety records, and treatment types are all leading in China and without serious complications.

What are the benefits of your technology over companies?
与其他公司相比,贵公司的技术有什么好处?
After many years of R&D and production, Shanghai A&S Technology has accumulated a lot of experience in the field of biomedical engineering. Compared with similar products, HIFUNIT9000 tumor ablation machine has several special features:
长达多年的研发和生产,爱申科技在生物医学工程领域积累了大量的经验。与同类产品相比,HIFUNIT9000型肿瘤消融机具有几个突出特点:

  • Effectiveness: the A&S technology patent for multiple-array, dual-focusing technology ensures that the sound intensity at the focal point meets the treatment requirements and the area outside the focus remains in the safe treatment range.
    有效:采用爱申科技专利——多元阵双重聚焦技术,保证焦点处声强达到治疗要求,而焦点以外区域属于安全治疗范围。

  • Safety: No anesthesia is needed during the treatment, and it will not harm normal organs such as the gastrointestinal tract. There are no serious complications or side effects.
    安全:治疗过程无需麻醉,不会伤及胃肠正常器官,未出现过严重并发症和副作用。

  • Precision: The treatment can determine the ablation range using real-time, accurate positioning of the ultrasound, and it can also be adjusted according to the actual situation during treatment.
    精准:治疗在B超实时精准定位下确定消融肿瘤范围,并在治疗中也可以根据实际情况变化做出调整。

  • Synergy: Since no harmful substances are produced during HIFU treatment, not only will it not affect other treatment methods, but it can also improve the treatment effect together with other treatment methods.
    协同:由于HIFU治疗无有害物质产生,不但不会影响其他治疗方法,同时可以与其他治疗方法共同提升治疗效果。

  • Comfort: Ours is the first domestic HIFU treatment device that has an upper probe. The patient is lying on his or her back during treatment (the device with a lower probe requires the patient to lie face down), and there is no need for the skin to directly contact with water, which greatly improves the comfort of treatment.
    舒适:国内第一个生产上置式探头的HIFU治疗设备,治疗时病人仰卧(下置式设备病人需俯卧),并且皮肤不直接接触水,极大地提升了治疗的舒适度。

  • Smart machine: We use a 3D reconstruction technology to save treatment time. We can also remotely provide assistance.
    智能:可采用3D重建技术,节约治疗时间,同时可以远程协助。
