On a typical morning in May, in the health management center at Xiaotangshan Hospital in Changping district, Beijing, people line up to experience the latest AI-empowered physical examinations.

With AI-assisted diagnostic technology, using a low-dose computerized tomography scan, physicians are able to assess patients’ risks of contracting coronary heart disease and lung tumors. The whole examination process is efficient and smooth.

Xiaotangshan Hospital is among the eight hospitals in Changping that have adopted the AI-empowered assisted diagnosis system — "Digital Body".

According to Shukun Technology — the system’s provider — AI facilitates the early screening of asymptomatic populations and intervention of potential risks. In this way, doctors may have better knowledge about patients and offer more accurate and personalized treatment solutions.

From self-developed surgical robots to intelligent ultrasound systems, the company has gradually shifted from a single software platform to a comprehensive intelligent solutions provider combining hardware and software.

Currently, Shukun’s Digital Body covers full patient services from disease screening, to diagnosis and treatment planning processes, and has been applied in smart imaging, smart surgery and smart health management fields.

In January 2023, Shukun signed a strategic partnership with Wuzhong district in Suzhou, Jiangsu province, using Digital Body in 13 medical institutions in the district. Currently, the local government and Shukun are joining hands to offer tests of 10,000 person-times in the district annually.

Data from Shukun showed that by the end of 2023, compared to levels before application, the system had quadrupled CT test volumes in the 13 medical institutions in Wuzhong to 190,000 person-times. With the normalized application of the system, it is expected to save over 11 million yuan ($1.5 million) in screening costs for the district every year.Featuring assisted diagnosis, precise medicine, intelligent pharmacy and surgical robots, AI is penetrating various subcategories in the medical devices sector.During the 2024 China International Medical […]
