Being flexible implies that something can change, adapt to new circumstances and contexts to facilitate improvement, and contribute to the greater good. Thus flexibility as a state of mind and as a physical quality is at the core of FleX-RAY.

FleX-RAY is a bold project that seeks to fundamentally radicalise digital X-ray imaging. As its very name implies, the core innovation is the inherent flexibility of the X-ray detector. The multidisciplinary technical expertises behind FleX-RAY envision constructing a photon-counting-based, flexible, digital X-Ray detector characterised by decreased manufacturing and maintenance costs. Additionally, the project will aim to explore the possibility of minimising the time and radiation needed to produce digital X-ray images of curved shapes. All these benefits are achievable by developing, combining and testing the joint effectiveness of different technologies to determine the most appropriate digital electronics, fibres and scintillating materials for the X-ray detector.

After all, " Flexibility is the great catalyst for change "

FleX-RAY’s mission is to explore how to bring about ground-breaking change to X-radiation devices for ages to come.
