Ibex Innovations  - X-ray technology

Ibex Innovations - X-ray technology

A quest to develop technology that will reduce the amount of X-ray radiation dose significantly has set IBEX Innovations on a course to revolutionise the market.

Their ground-breaking technology is applied in the food, medical, defence and electronics sectors. Their detectors set themselves apart in the way they enable users to obtain more information from the X-ray images, and allow users to analyse and interpret data in more depth.

Doctors, for example, can see the exact composition of a tumour and food technologists can distinguish glass, bone or plastic inside packaged food much more easily.

 “Our technology readily retrofits to existing silicon-based X-ray detectors and can simultaneously determine both the thickness and composition of materials over large areas and at high speed. This will greatly enhance the capability of X-ray systems used in important industrial applications such as electronics inspection. Additionally, the IBEX technology has the potential to vastly improve contrast at significantly lower patient doses in medical radiography, leading to earlier cancer detection, better follow-up and reduced mortality from radiation exposure.”
