X-rays are a fundamental diagnostic tool - but they are not without problems: standard 2D X-ray machines are massively heavy, and their results can be inconclusive. More modern CT scans are better for diagnosing trauma and disease, but the patient will be exposed to more radiation.

Each image is expensive and patients have to travel to the machine - which often means putting the patient at risk.

The next generation of healthcare requires X-ray machines that are portable, produce high quality images and aren’t prohibitively expensive. Adaptix has developed a 3D low dose imaging solution that reduces clinical decision times and will take the technology to communities that have previously been unable to benefit from it.

Mark Evans, CEO of Adaptix, says: ‘There are so many applications that patients will appreciate. We hope it will become the standard imaging used in radiology and will help reduce the reliance on costly high dose CT referrals by approximately 25-30%. But the most exciting opportunity for me is the possibility that 3D imaging can be more widely available, for example in developing countries that have a lower investment in healthcare and higher mortality rates.’

Chief Science Officer Dr Gil Travish says: ‘The radiation of our technology is around one tenth of a typical CT scan. And despite the modern approach, we’ve ensured the machine is lighter, which makes it more portable, and a lot cheaper to buy and run than any of the current X-ray machines on the market.’
