Scientists Have Created the World’s First Color 3D-X-Ray Apparatus

The traditional two-dimensional X-rays will be replaced by detailed volumetric images of the whole organism.

Radiography is the main method of diagnosing fractures, cracks and other injuries of bones, organs and soft tissues. With the help of X-rays, doctors receive a two-dimensional black and white snapshot of the anatomical structure of the body, and for over one hundred years this technology has not changed. New Zealand’s MARS Bioimaging company has developed the world’s first full-color X-ray machine capable of producing 3D images.

The new medical scanner is based on the technology developed by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), so there can be no doubt about the exact results, they will certainly be much more accurate than the traditional X-ray. The device uses the Medipix3 chip, which was originally designed to track particles at the Large Hadron Collider. The chip works like a digital camera – when you open the shutter, you fix and count the light particles that fall on each pixel.

The MARS Bioimaging scanner makes detailed, full-color shots that clearly identify bones, soft tissues, fat, fluid and other foreign objects and materials, such as metal and plastic. Thus, its software actually creates a three-dimensional map of the whole organism.

MARS Bioimaging plans in the future to make its development mass. The scanner can be used to study cancer, vascular diseases and diseases of the musculoskeletal system, early diagnosis of which is very important in the early stages. Over the next few months, the device will be tested in patients in the departments of orthopedics and rheumatology in New Zealand in clinical trials.
