Micro-X plans human trials for ambulance stroke CT

Micro-X's new stroke ambulance head CT unit prototype is nearing field trials in Australia.

When completed, the Micro-X Head CT will weigh less than 70 kg (154 lb) and will contain 21 mini x-ray tubes, as opposed to a conventional CT that is more than 1,200 kg (2,646 lb) with one x-ray tube in a rotating gantry, according to the company. Its nanoelectronic x-ray technology uses carbon nanotubes to miniaturize x-ray tubes.
