UC Connect public lecture: MARS: X-ray colour for medicine

The MARS spectral x-ray scanner will revolutionise medical imaging globally, and the diagnosis and treatment of diseases such as cancer and heart disease, because it provides far greater detail of the body’s chemical components.

In the recent UC Connect public lecture, the MARS spectral x-ray scanner is explained by one of the UC scientists who invented it, Professor Anthony Butler.

“The goal of the MARS project is to advance x-ray imaging so that it provides researchers and clinicians with a tool to measure biochemical and physiological processes in the body, enabling researchers and clinicians to better diagnose and treat a wide range of diseases.”
