NANORAY: Portable X-ray machine for ambulances

 Mobile medical teams might soon be able to use X-rays at emergencies on site


An EU research project, NANORAY, has developed a portable device which opens the way for X-ray technology to be used in ambulances and other
'in-the-field' medical situations.

The device, supported by €1 million in EU funds, weighs only 5 kilos and produces cheaper and significantly better quality images than conventional
X-ray machines.
