New Zealand researchers present at CERN

Friday, 12 May 2017

Ever since Röntgen discovered X-rays in 1895, physics and medicine have gone hand in hand, and advances made to particle detectors at CERN and elsewhere have continuously fuelled new developments in medical imaging. A third generation of one of the particle detectors, the Medipix3 chip, enables ‘colour’ imaging of X-ray CT scans, or so-called Spectral CT.

Professor Anthony Butler is presenting pre-clinical results of this technology at CERN.
