An all-in-one system to make digital radiology available worldwide
Country: switzerland
Contact Person: Klaus Schönenberger


X-ray imaging is essential in primary healthcare, mainly for diagnosing fractures and for tuberculosis screening. The main challenge of this ambitious project is to develop a high-quality digital x-ray system specifically adapted to low and middle income countries, with a total cost of ownership reduced tenfold.

The system has to resist erratic electrical supply, harsh climatic conditions and require very little maintenance during its whole life cycle. Substantially, the system will allow the deployment of advanced features, such tele radiology, remote maintenance and computer aided diagnosis tools. A spin-off company assures the industrialization and long-term impact at scale.
