Nanox's digital X-ray tech is far less expensive than conventional scans

Nanox's digital X-ray tech is far less expensive than conventional scans

According to the World Health Organization, X-ray scans are unavailable for almost two-thirds of the people in the world due to the sheer cost of the machines. The conventional X-ray machine requires a lot of energy and heat which costs millions of dollars. To overcome this problem, Nanox a healthcare giant in Asia is developing a new X-ray machine named Nanox. The device more or less looks like a Star Trek biobed and it costs less than any conventional machines.

Nanox is using a digital technology system that is cooler than any other scanners and it can easily get away with stationary tubes that are much smaller as well as cheaper. But it requires the ring which holds the gantry for its flexible movement when it scans different parts of the body. The device also has an AI bases analysis and cloud services which can detect glands, tumors, or any other type of problems easily using a modern in-built sensor that is digitally equipped.

Nanox has not yet confirmed the release date of this device, but the firm has confirmed that it will be hitting the market by the end of 2020. The price will be comparatively cheaper than the other available X-ray machines and will be more efficient as well as effective in terms of the device and the company wants to give everyone a free X-ray scan per year for its employees.
