Date:10/15/2007

BEIJING, Oct. 15 /Xinhua-PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- China Medical Technologies, Inc. (the "Company") (Nasdaq: CMED), a leading China-based medical device company that develops, manufactures and markets advanced in- vitro diagnostic products and high intensity focused ultrasound ("HIFU") tumor therapy systems, today announced that it has received official approval from the Korean Food and Drug Administration (the "KFDA") to market its HIFU tumor therapy system in Korea for the treatment of liver cancer, pancreatic cancer and uterine fibroids.

"KFDA approval is another significant milestone in attaining international recognition for our HIFU system, particularly after having received conditional approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in July 2007 to commence human clinical trials," stated Mr. Xiaodong Wu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company. "We are pleased to introduce our HIFU system to Korean patients and excited about the opportunity to commence our HIFU sales outside of China."

Cancer is the leading cause of death in Korea and the number of Korean cancer patients is increasing. The introduction of the Company's HIFU tumor therapy system to Korean hospitals will provide patients with a tumor treatment alternative that can also compliment conventional treatment approaches.

There are over 1,000 general hospitals in Korea. The Company's exclusive distributor in Korea will initially target the large general hospitals in Korea to promote our HIFU tumor therapy system. The Company and its distributor will periodically review the Company's sales strategy for the Korean market with a particular focus on the Company's long-term market position in Korea.
