New X-ray machine inaugurated at Karolinska University Hospital

"During Friday, the world's first silicon-based photon-counting computed tomograph was inaugurated at Medtechlabs at Karolinska University Hospital. The new X-ray technology is the first of its kind in the world, and with a higher resolution in the X-ray images, you can improve diagnostics and thus treatment results while reducing the radiation dose. - You can make the pixels smaller so that the resolution is better, says Mats Danielsson, who is behind the technology."
