The color X-ray technology comes from a company from New Zealand called Mars Bioimaging that managed to do it thanks to a CERN-made chip named Medipix3. The dense material absorbs some of those rays and appears in white in the resulting image, while the remaining rays pass through softer tissues and muscles and appear as solid black.

"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. The concept behind the chip is that it works like a camera in that it detects and counts every individual particle that hits the pixels when the electronic shutter is opened. The technology results in "high-resolution, high-contrast, very reliable images", making it ideal for use in medical imaging.

Anthony Butler says the MARS scanner will enable more accurate diagnosis of medical conditions ranging from cancer to arthritis and will allow for more personalized treatment plans. The Medipix3 chip is now the most advanced chip available. The basis of the device were loaded with technology designed specifically for the Large hadron Collider (LHC), so the researchers have signed a cooperation agreement with the European organization for nuclear research (CERN).

They further describe their project by saying, The MARS small bore scanner enables customers to conduct experiments in a system that is directly translatable to human imaging.

"X-ray spectral information allows health professionals to measure the different components of body parts such as fat, water, calcium, and disease markers".

CERN's Knowledge Transfer group has a long-standing expertise in transferring CERN technologies, in particular for medical applications. The technology has been dubbed "Spectral CT".

The scanner will be used in world first clinical trials involving Rheumatology and orthopedic patients in forthcoming months.
