NZ scientists revolutionising x-ray scanning technology

From Nine To Noon, 9:38 am on 26 April 2018

New Zealand researchers say they've developed the next big medical imaging innovation, that will revolutionise the way x-rays detect, diagnose and monitor many diseases, including cancer. It's a spectral molecular scanner that provides 3D colour images of objects inside the body, such as bone, soft tissue and artificial joints. Kathryn Ryan speaks with one of the lead researchers, University of Canterbury Professor Anthony Butler.
