Perspectum, the leading provider of diagnostic solutions for metabolic disease and cancer, is partnering Precious Medical, a premier imaging centre in Singapore, following a successful launch event this week.

Chronic liver disease is a ‘silent’ and growing epidemic. Increasing levels of obesity and diabetes have driven a rise in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), estimated to affect 40% of Singaporeans. NAFLD also appears to affect Asians at a lower BMI compared to Westerners. Most patients may not experience symptoms till the advanced, irreversible stages. If liver disease is diagnosed early, progression can be limited, reducing the need for expensive interventions.

Dr William Chong, director of Precious Medical Centre says, “The development of accurate methods to quantify chronic liver disease will help improve the quality of care for our patients. We are proud to be the first to offer LiverMultiScan clinically in Asia. We hope that this partnership will also create more awareness and people will consider liver checks as an integral part of their health screening — the earlier the diagnosis, the greater the probability of recovery.”

“We are excited to bring our innovations to the clinics in Asia — providing scalable, patient-centric solutions to cater to the growing epidemic.” shared Sir Michael Brady, Chairman of Perspectum.
