Adaptix Ltd has designed a new flatpanel x-ray source which will improve the accuracy and mobility of 3D imaging. The company’s technology will make portable, low radiation-dose 3D imaging more accessible and lower-cost than systems currently available on the market. The technology will also allow hospitals to provide faster and more definitive diagnoses.
For patients, this means a quicker and more accurate diagnosis at the bedside and less exposure to radiation; and for healthcare professionals it means, in addition, saving costs and time.
To do this, devices using our technology fire X-rays from different positions across a flat panel array of small X-ray emitters. Using an innovative reconstruction, a 3D Digital Tomosynthesis (DT) image set will be produced. These results provide more diagnostic accuracy than 2D imaging at a fraction of the dose received from a CT scan all in a mobile device that can be brought to the patient.
