Diseases that Harm Require Therapies that Harm Less---Sir William Osler（1849-1919)
From July 8 to 9, the 5th Yangtze International Summit of Minimally Invasive and Noninvasive Medicine & 2023 "the Belt and Road" Innovation Forum on Minimally Invasive and Noninvasive Medical was held in Liangjiang New area of Chongqing. In view of the minimally invasive and noninvasive medical concept of "treating human diseases with less harmful treatment methods", nearly 120 overseas medical experts and a total of more than 500 personnel in the field of minimally invasive and noninvasive medicine gathered at this grand event to discuss the cutting-edge technology of minimally invasive and noninvasive medicine and disseminate new minimally invasive ideas to jointly promote the development of global medicine.
The conference was hosted by the International Society of Minimally Invasive and Virtual Surgery (ISMIVS), Chongqing Medical University, the State Key Laboratory of Ultrasound in Medicine and Engineering, and the National Research Center for Medicine Ultrasonic Medicine and Engineering, the opening ceremony was presided over by Yuan Jun, Vice President of Chongqing Medical University. Nearly 100 well-known medical experts from more than 20 countries and regions, including China, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Australia, Colombia, Spain, Singapore, South Korea, etc. Including academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE), European Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy (ESGE), Asia-Pacific Association for Gynecologic Endoscopy and Minimally Industry Leaders of Invasive Therapy (APAGE) and other societies have conducted thematic discussions on minimally invasive and noninvasive medical concepts, as well as cutting-edge technologies such as endoscopy and high-intensity focused ultrasound, covering obstetrics and gynaecology, surgery, interventional radiology, ultrasound diagnosis and other fields.
The 12 parallel sub-forums were officially kicked off by the lively presentations of many big shots. The topics of the sub-forum on July 8 include Academician Forum, Development Direction of Minimally Invasive and Noninvasive Medicine, and Minimally Invasive and Noninvasive Medicine Assisting Hospital Development; The topics of the July 9 sub-forum include Fertility Protection, Minimally Invasive and Noninvasive Treatment Strategies and Techniques for Adenomyosis, Discussion of Difficult Cases, Guidelines for Prolonging the Survival Period and Improving the Quality of Life of Patients with Pancreatic Cancer, Treatment Strategies for Liver Cancer, Minimally Invasive and Noninvasive Treatment of Gynecological Diseases, Future Development Direction of FUAS and Expansion of Other Indications, Noninvasive Treatment of Vulva and Cervical Diseases, Roundtable Forum on Minimally Invasive and Noninvasive Specialty Construction to Assist High-quality Development of Hospital.
The concept of minimally invasive and noninvasive medicine is an advanced medical concept that conforms to the development trend of human medicine, covering almost all specialities such as clinical, nursing, imaging and laboratory medicine. With the help of modern medical technology such as ultrasound, radiofrequency, endoscopy, and intervention, experts in various fields have unique skills to save lives, cure diseases, and minimize the harm suffered by patients. Among them, there is FUAS, which is considered by many experts to be a game-changing, revolutionary and cost-saving medical treatment, and its treatment of solid tumours has the advantages of being non-trauma, bloodless, scarless, and radiation-free.
