The "National Innovation Award" is the highest honor for innovative R & D in the domestic biotechnology field and is used to recognize innovative technologies and products. In the 16 years since its establishment, the "National Innovation Award" has become an important indicator of outstanding academic research institutions and clinical research teams. Every year, more than 100 innovative research and development achievements participate in the selection. The awards are divided into three categories: enterprise innovation, academic research innovation and clinical innovation. This year, the "Innovation Excellence Award" has been added. Enterprises, academic research institutions and clinical teams that have won the National Innovation Award, whose award-winning projects have specific progress, can apply for the " National Innovation Excellence Award". Those who have won the National Innovation Excellence Award twice can compete for the National Innovation Sustainable Award. Each year, the number of uncategorized groups is limited to one to three places, which has become a sustainable benchmark for the National Innovation Award.
The 16th National Innovation Award: FattyTouch New Generation Ultrasonic Fatty Liver Diagnostic System
Fatty liver has been confirmed as the main pathogenesis of non-viral liver cancer. Professor Cui Boxiang's team has long been committed to the research of ultrasonic scattering analysis technology and successfully developed "FattyTouch: a new-generation ultrasound fatty liver diagnosis system", which provides standard abdominal Sonic scan function and quantitative analysis of fatty liver degree, realize accurate interpretation of fatty liver. FattyTouch can further be used as the best management platform for fatty liver screening and follow-up liver health tracking. It can also be used in the development of new drugs for fatty liver treatment for therapeutic evaluation. FattyTouch technology has now been transferred to HONG KONG E-SONO BIOTECH CO., LIMITED TAIWAN BRANCH which will soon enter mass production and commercial planning. It will become the unicorn company of Taiwan's ultrasonic liver specialist medical materials. In the future, FattyTouch is expected to create more than 8 billion ultrasound specialty medical materials and liver health service market value in the diagnosis and treatment of fatty liver, general screening for adults and children, pharmaceutical companies and health products or related health promotion industries.
