Battery-Powered Portable X-Ray Machine: Your Insides Have Nowhere to Hide
April 29th, 2012
If you’ve ever been asked to have a radiograph of your body taken, then you know that X-ray machines are quite large and even the portable ones are carried by large vans. Until now. Japanese company Mikasa recently introduced a battery-powered X-ray machine that’s small enough to be carried by hand.
The machine is relatively lightweight at 7kg (approx. 15lbs.) including its battery, which can power the machine for up to 300 uses per charge. The machine will of course be a boon in emergency situations and in remote areas.
But the best thing about this machine is that, as YouTuber rubbermuck noted, it looks like something that the Ghostbusters would use. When there’s something strange, in your right boob, who you gonna call? The doctor!
