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.
A traditional black and white X-ray based new device incorporated the particle-tracking technique for CERN’s large hadron collider. It was found in Higgs Boson in 2012.
“These X-ray imaging technology creates more precise, accurate images that give patients more accurate diagnosis,” says CERN.
CERN, also called Medipix, detects individual atomic particles. It is clashing with the pixel when the screen is open. This allows a higher resolution, allowing higher contrast variations.
“The image of this new image cannot 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.
According to the CERN data, the image shows the difference between bones, muscles and cartilage very clearly, but it also shows the location and size of cancer tumors.
This technology is produced by a New Zealand-based company, MARS Bioimaging, with contacting the University of Otago and the University of Canterbury.
