Adaptix Imaging

Adaptix Imaging

adaptix logo

Adaptix is transforming planar X-ray by giving it true 3D capability, making it safer by reducing dose (versus CT, and potentially versus planar X-ray), making the systems 50% cheaper than existing market offerings and reducing weight and size by 90%. By doing this we will be improving access to the world’s most important medical diagnostic device and radically changing a £5bn global market.
