    Scientists from New Zealand recently performed the first-ever 3-D, color X-ray on a human being.

    Developed by the European Organization for Nuclear Research, known as CERN, the new device works like a camera, collecting individual sub-atomic particles as they rapidly collide with pixels when its shutter is open, the Agence France Press reported.

    This allows for high-contrast, high-resolution pictures to be produced at a quick rate.

    The device, named “Medipix,” incorporates particle-tracking technology developed for CERN's Large Hadron Collider, which in 2012 discovered the Higgs Boson particle.

    “This color X-ray imaging technique could produce clearer and more accurate pictures and help doctors give their patients more accurate diagnoses,” read a statement from CERN.

    The “Medipix” is unique because it has the capability to show practitioners the difference between bone, muscle and cartilage in real time.
