The images produced by their invention are clearer and more accurate than x-ray technologies now available.

"Mars scanners use a detector that uses the color or energy information of the x-rays that traditional x-ray detectors don't use", Professor Phil Butler, a physicist working at New Zealand's University of Canterbury who helped invent the Mars scanner, told Digital Trends. Finally, on July 10, they released the world's first x-rays of the very first human to have been scanned by the technology.

The device, as the release described, emitted beams of X-ray, but instead of the conventional way, it measured how the wavelength of the radiation changed after hitting different particles in your body such bone or a tissue.

"In all of these studies, promising early results suggest that when spectral imaging is routinely used in clinics it will enable more accurate diagnosis and personalization of treatment". His ankle and wrist were imaged using new technology.

'Clear evidence of need' in N. Korea
Lowcock on Wednesday met with the North s health minister Jang Jun Sang, Pyongyang s official KCNA news agency said without elaborating further.

"Traditional black-and-white x-rays only allow measurement of the density and shape of an object", said Anthony, highlighting MARS's advantage over the traditional x-ray machine.

While it is not available in hospitals or doctors' offices quite yet, a small version of the scanner is already being used in studies covering cancer, vascular diseases, bone and joint health, heart attacks, and strokes. It produces images with improved diagnostic information and will enable doctors to offer the best advice on treatment options.

Phil and Anthony said they are now developing a machine that can scan the whole body.

Medipix is a family of read-out chips for particle imaging and detection. What makes this technology unique is it's use of particle-tracking technology developed by CERN's Large Hadron Collider team. Over the course of 20 years from the first time the chip was introduced, it has undergone different improvements. In the case of the MARS scanner, the CERN Medipix3 chip sees its relevance in the medical field. The Medipix3 chip is now the most advanced chip available. The Medipix3 chip is the most advanced chip available today and Professor Phil Butler recognises that "this technology sets the machine apart diagnostically because its small pixels and accurate energy resolution mean that this new imaging tool is able to get images that no other imaging tool can achieve".
