IBEX Innovations has successfully demonstrated, in a previous Smart Development of Prototype project, the materials classification capability of its Multi-Absorption Plate (MAP) X-ray detector technology. The ability to identify materials in a medical image using the MAP technology, integrated to a standard medical flat panel detector (FPD), offers significant benefits, including the ability to measure bone mineral density (BMD) on standard Digital Radiography (DR) equipment.
Using this grant, IBEX will investigate the application of its materials classification technology to angiography procedures.
Kurt Scott, Grants Manager at IBEX commented, “It’s fantastic to know that the potential of the IBEX technology is being recognised by other people and the support we have received so far through various grants not only demonstrates this recognition, but also enables us to drive development and commercialisation of the technology on a much shorter timescale than we could otherwise.”

About IBEX Innovations Limited
IBEX Innovations Limited (IBEX) is a venture capital backed technology business focused on the commercialisation of patented X-ray detector technology for medical and industrial imaging markets. The IBEX technology, which retrofits to existing X-ray detectors, recovers spectral information normally lost in digital X-ray imaging to classify materials in the sample and deliver improved detection of defects and impurities. IBEX is developing applications for its technology in multiple industrial markets including food inspection and NDT, and for medical radiography where the technology is expected to generate improved diagnostic images at reduced patient dose.
