TAIYUAN, CHINA, July 24, 2021 -- The forum "New Era of 5G-powered Remote Robotic Ultrasound System" was held in Taiyuan, capital city of Shanxi province. The forum was co-organized by the Chinese Medical Doctor Association and the Ultrasound Branch of Chinese Medical Doctor Association, and MGI. It attracted many scientists and ultrasound experts to come together to share the academic achievements and discuss the application prospect of 5G-powered Remote Robotic Ultrasound System.
Professor Li Qiuyang from Beijing 301 Hospital presided at the forum
Professor Luo Yukun from Beijing 301 Hospital said in his speech, "Powered by 5G technology and artificial intelligence (AI), MGI Remote Robotic Ultrasound System can achieve remote real-time diagnosis without the need for a physician and patient to be at the same location."

MGIUS-R3 contributes to addressing the issue of the medical resources shortage in rural area
Professor Xiong Yi from Shenzhen Luohu People's Hospital talked about the current situation of medical association construction. There is still a shortage of sonographers in community health centers. Meanwhile, as it is difficult to estimate the number of consultations in community health centers, allocating sonographers to community health centers might be a waste of medical resources. MGI's 5G-powered Remote Robotic Ultrasound System, however, can help to solve this problem.

Professor Wu Meng Introduced the Situation in Leishenshan Hospital
Professor Wu Meng, from Zhongnan Hospital of Wuhan University and then director of the Ultrasound Department at Wuhan Leishenshan Hospital, reviewed the application of remote ultrasound robot in Leishenshan Hospital during the 2020 outbreak.
During the pandemic outbreak, MGIUS-R3 is able to be connected with experts from thousands of miles away in Beijing, Zhejiang and Hainan, helping doctors to conduct remote real-time diagnosis for patients in Wuhan, effectively reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19 to medical personnel and save the lives of patients.
MGI Robotic Ultrasound Vehicle can conduct remote diagnosis at the altitude of 3,700 meters
In 2021, MGI launched an innovative product Robotic Ultrasound Vehicle, which, a mobile ultrasonic clinic in effect, can provide one-stop diagnosis service without the need for a professional sonographer onboard and people can receive high-quality medical services from the comfort of their homes.
Professor Fei Xiang of Beijing 301 Hospital also demonstrated how to connect with the Robotic Ultrasound Vehicle on the plateau at the altitude of 3,700 meters to conduct remote real-time diagnosis for patients via 5G network.
Professor Fei Demonstrated the Remote Diagnosis with the Robotic Ultrasound Vehicle
We believe the Remote Robotic Ultrasound System has a very promising future
At the end of the forum, Professor Tang Jie of Beijing 301 Hospital commented: "It is remarkable that it only took MGI four years to get the Class III medical device qualification by the China National Medical Product Administration (NMPA). We cannot predict the future clinical application of Remote Robotic Ultrasound System, but we believe it has a promising future to benefit the health of all people."
Professor Tang Jie Made Conclusive Comments
MGI is committed to developing and promoting advanced life science tools for future healthcare. MGI's proprietary Robotic Ultrasound Vehicle integrates 5G technology, remote ultrasound robot, and AI diagnosis software to overcome the distance limitations of traditional ultrasound diagnostic methods, makes high-quality medical services within reach.
