College Member Won Medal in the International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva 2022

College member, Professor Chen Weitian of the Department of Imaging and Interventional Radiology was awarded medals the International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva 2022. Details are listed as follows:

Project Coordinator

Awards

Project Title

Project Description

Professor Chen Weitian

(Department of Imaging and Interventional Radiology)

Gold Medal

Non-invasive Biochemical Imaging of Human Tissues Using Spin-lock Magnetic Resonance Imaging

This invention can be used for the non-invasive diagnosis of biochemical properties of various human diseases at early stages. It can also be used for monitoring the effectiveness of disease treatment.

One application of this novel MRI technique is to diagnose liver fibrosis by directly imaging macromolecule depositions in the liver, which provides opportunities to detect liver fibrosis at early stages for timely treatment.

Silver Medal

System for Automatic Articular Cartilage Thickness Mapping

Cartilage loss is shown to be a risk factor of Osteoarthritis (OA) which is one of the main causes of disability in older people. This invention, consisting of methods in image segmentation, three-dimensional reconstruction, morphological quantification, and 3D visualisation, is a system for automatic mapping of articular cartilage thickness mapping.

College Student Awarded The Hong Kong Humanity Youth Power 2021 by Walking Through Darkness with Mood Disorder Patients

College student, Michael W M Chan (GPAD/4), was awarded The Hong Kong Humanity Youth Power 2021 in recognition of his humanitarian contributions.

Michael is one of the founders of a student organisation “Companion HK”, with the belief to provide appropriate assistance to patients with mental illnesses or mood disorders, as well as to increase the awareness of mental health across the community through videos and workshops. Michael was suffered from brain cancer when he was small, which caused deafness in his right ear and poor vision in his right eye. His language and facial development were also affected. Physical imperfections were never an excuse for him. He devoted himself to care mental and mood disorder patients, and raise public awareness to mental well-being.
