MARS Bioimaging Unveils a 3D X-ray Scanner

According to the European Organization for Nuclear Research, known as CERN, it could be utilized to produce clearer, more accurate images compared to the traditional black-and-white X-rays hospital doctors have been using routinely since at least the 1930s.

New Zealand's CERN Physics Laboratory says New Zealand scientists have used 3-D color X-rays in humans for the first time using a technology that promises to improve the field of medical diagnostics.

Phil Butler co-developed the scanner with his son Anthony Butler, a radiologist and professor at the Universities of Canterbury and Otago. MBI works closely with customers to provide a wide range of spectral imaging solutions for applications ranging from cancer detection to development of novel contrast agents.

The original concept of Medipix is that it works like a camera, detecting and counting each individual particle hitting the pixels when its electronic shutter is open.

"The image of this new image can not be obtained with other image tools due to the small pixels and specific energy resolution of the machine", said Phill Butler, a student of University of Canterbury.

VAR used for first time in World Cup final
But they are not even thinking about how the French public is reacting to their run in Russian Federation . French football fans gather outside the Champs-de-Mars fan zone in Paris ahead of the World Cup final.

The images produced by their invention are clearer and more accurate than x-ray technologies now available. When an X-ray beam passes through a body, its photons are absorbed at different amounts depending on the density of material such as bones.

An innovative device capable of making three dimensional color images of high resolution and high accuracy drawing details.

So far, researchers have been using a small version of the MARS scanner to study cancer, bone and joint health, and vascular diseases that cause heart attacks and strokes.

In the coming months, orthopaedic and rheumatology patients in New Zealand will be scanned by the revolutionary MARS scanner in a clinical trial that is a world first, paving the way to a potentially routine use of this new generation equipment.
