Color 3-D X-Ray Developed By CERN, And It Could Revolutionize The Medical Industry

The iconic black-and-white X-rays could soon be a thing of the past, thanks to the development of a new color X-ray system by New Zealand scientists.

The technology is called Medipix, and it is quite extraordinary. It was developed by Europe’s CERN lab, and uses the same particle-tracking technology as the Large Hadron Collider.

The color X-ray is clearer, sharper, and easier to look at than traditional X-rays. Also, you can see muscle, cartilage, and bone, giving doctors a more comprehensive 3-D rendering of what’s going on inside someone’s body, reported Yahoo News. Even more than that, the color X-ray can show water, fat, and even disease markers.

Black-and-white X-rays use rays to create an image by beaming a ray through the body. The result is that denser parts of the body like the bone is clearer, while soft tissue is harder to see.
