Nanox has reinvented medical imaging technology to make the equipment affordable and smaller.
Only 1/3 of the world has any access to medical imaging. Of that fortunate 1/3, many people face additional barriers to getting the testing done, such as financial issues or long waiting times. Immediate access to medical imaging is crucial for discovering conditions early and treating them before they progress. Without it, some problems can become chronic or more dangerous.
One of the limiting factors to access is the high cost of building and operating X-ray equipment. This can typically cost millions. Nanox knew the answer to the widespread availability of medical imaging was to entirely redesign the X-ray process, which has remained almost unchanged since its conception. Their innovative design is smaller and lighter than conventional equipment, with no moving parts inside the imaging device. This makes it more affordable to produce and ship around the world.
The equipment can take traditional x-rays or more detailed CT scans. The scanned images can be easily uploaded to Nanox’s secure cloud for analysis by expert radiologists or by using artificial intelligence. Their global initiative is that each symptomatic patient, no matter where they live, can access a scan once a year – Their 1 x 1 x 1 vision.
