Under the partnership with NDR, CGBIO will carry out clinical studies with local prominent doctors as part of efforts to expand the ANT system in a wide range of interventional procedures that need percutaneous need placement in urology, orthopedics, neurosurgery, etc., coupled with a study to finalize the launching ANT-C, a CT-guided robot.
Graduates from Nanyang Technology founded NDR Medical Technology in 2015 and developed the world's first AI-empowered interventional robot systems.
For global expansion, NDR has obtained CE certification for ANT-X and completed clinical studies in Japan and Southeast Asian countries.
