Radiography and computed tomography (CT) use X-ray photons to study the human body. The Medipix chips that implement on-pixel single photon counting provide many advantages for use in these fields. The technology has been applied in X-ray CT, in prototype systems for digital mammography, in CT imagers for mammography and for beta- and gamma-autoradiography of biological samples. Moreover, with the Medipix3 chip, the images are no longer black and white - they have colours to inducate different energy levels of the photons. The colour X-ray imaging technique produces clearer and more accurate pictures that should help doctors give their patients more accurate diagnoses.
