Beijing, China – From July 21 to July 23, Shanghai MicroPort Medical (Group) Co., Ltd. ("MicroPort®") attended the 14th Cardiac Imaging & Cardiac Interventional Summit held in Beijing and hosted a case competition. Themed on "Collaboration, Innovation, Concentration, Intelligence," the congress focused on the latest advancement of cardiovascular imaging, precise treatment under the guidance of multimodal imaging, new technologies of coronary interventional treatment, as well as case studies and operation demonstrations.
The opening ceremony was chaired by Professor Yundai Chen of Chinese PLA General Hospital and "Princess CICI," a robot of Chinese PLA General Hospital which can work as a guiding-nurse to assist the physicians and help patients. Princess CICI had good interaction with Professor Chen and introduced the experts in attendance one by one.

The future development of cardiac imaging will leverage new technologies of cardiovascular imaging and intervention as well as artificial intelligence to expand the application of imaging technology in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases and fundamental researches, and promote precise medicine.
On July 22, MicroPort® hosted a case competition and invited cardiologists from all over China to share and discuss the treatment of complex cases. The first half was co-chaired by Professor Qin Qin of Tianjin Chest Hospital, Professor Jincheng Guo of Beijing Luhe Hospital of Capital Medical University, Professor Yu Wang of Chinese PLA General Hospital, and Professor Jiancheng Xiu of Nanfang Hospital of Southern Medical University.

Since 2016, MicroPort® hosted the case competition in various national-level congresses such as South China International Congress of Cardiology and Oriental Congress of Cardiology, and has received positive feedback.
