Radiology is based on a technology invented over a century ago, by accident.
it's about time to update the concept - disrupting through science
In 1895, German physicist Wilhelm Roentgen was experimenting with electron beams projected on a fluorescent screen.
Passing his hand through the beam he noticed the screen showed the "shadow" of the bones of his hand.
The era of medical imaging had begun.
The World Health Organization constitution states:
“The enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health is one of the fundamental rights of every human being…”
Despite great efforts by the medical industry, disaster support groups and even the military, it is still extremely expensive -and difficult- to install medical imaging facilities or mobilize small-scale devices due to the high amount of energy needed to operate them.
Bringing medical imaging to rural areas is one of the key goals
the digital era enabled Computer Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Positron Emission Tomography (PET), adding new energy sources and higher definition.
it's time to disrupt and simplify
Radiation exposure for the human body is dangerous. Even low-energy X-rays require high-quality shielding
During the last 100 years more than 5 billion people have been exposed to X-rays
We believe we can bring radiation levels down to one-tenth
