MARS Bioimaging's 3D colour X-ray scanner has arrived in Europe to undertake clinical trials that will lead to its medical use.
The ADMIRA project uses Timepix-based detectors to help students experiment with particle physics and contributes to transforming STEM education.
Stunning new images pave the way to large-scale human trials, two years on from the first ever 3D colour human X-ray using CERN Medipix3 technology
CERN’s Timepix particle detectors, developed by the Medipix2 Collaboration, help unravel the secret of a long-lost painting by the great Renaissance master, Raphael.
The current standard for definitive diagnosis of COVID-19 is the real-time reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR).
The story of how detector components ended up in medical imaging, in art restoration and even in space.
As we prepare to send the first woman and next man to the Moon and on to Mars, NASA, with support from the University of Houston, has been working to develop advanced radiation detectors to better protect astronauts and vital spacecraft systems.
What does CERN have to do with 3D colour x-rays and 19th century paintings?
The Medipix2 Collaboration will celebrate 20 years of activity in 2019. To mark the occasion, a special symposium on Medipix and Timepix will be held at CERN on 18 September.
The X-rays used for radiation therapy, medical imaging and many other applications are produced by slamming an electron beam into a piece of metal.
