VinBrain, a Vietnamese AI startup in healthcare, clinched the Gold Prize for Digital Innovation at the 2024 ASEAN Digital Awards with its trailblazing DrAid™ CT Liver Cancer Diagnosis & Treatment (D&T). This accolade, presented by the Southeast Asia Digital Association, recognizes VinBrain as an innovator at the award ceremony held in Singapore on February 1, 2024.
Notably, VinBrain distinguished itself as Vietnam's premier nominee and outshone competitors from Singapore and Thailand. Its revolutionary product made its US debut at the 109th RSNA meeting in 2023, garnering accolades from global experts.
AI applications like VinBrain's are extraordinary in liver cancer diagnostic and treatment fields due to intense technological and medical expertise prerequisites. DrAid™ CT Liver Cancer D&T utilizes AI technology, Computer Vision, and the world's most advanced image registration technologies to detect abnormalities in a liver lesion as small as 5mm in CT scans. The product not only aids in early diagnosis but also assists doctors in planning precise and effective treatment.
DrAid™ CT Liver Cancer D&T is the result of extensive development efforts, including rigorous testing across top-tier global hospitals. It boasts scholarly validations with features in eminent scientific journals like Nature. On track for FDA certification, DrAid™ CT Liver Cancer D&T is advancing towards North American market entry, following the first success of DrAid™ Radiology V1 imaging diagnostic line, which received FDA approval in 2022.
