The Company’s flagship product is its HepaFat-AI technology. This gained FDA approval earlier this year. The FDA approval which paves the way for commercialisation of the technology sent its shares 80% higher on the day.

HepaFat-AI results can be used to monitor liver fat content in patients undergoing weight loss management. Additionally, it can aid in the assessment and screening of living donors for liver transplants.
