Founded in 2008, Mobius Imaging envisioned developing a novel CT scanner with an Intelligent Imaging approach to help in surgeries and interventional procedures. Encompassing the firm’s Intelligent Imaging approach is Mobius Imaging’s flagship product, the Airo Mobile Intraoperative CT scanner, which can be brought to the patient. The scanner produces high-resolution CT images that enhance the decision-making processes in surgeries and support minimally invasive surgical procedures. The portable scanner provides three-dimensional images with its integrated OR table and 32-slice helical scan detector array. “Airo particularly helps in cranial, spinal and trauma procedures,” confides Gregerson.

Mobius Imaging’s Airo mobility features include a five-degree ramp capacity, and it can travel long distances on its battery-powered motorized drive. The CT scanner is a multipurpose machine that can be used by healthcare practitioners in multiple locations inside a hospital—be it the radiology department for scanning or for surgeries in operating theatres.
Mobius Imaging developed several new technologies required to build such a compact sized CT scanner. The firm developed high voltage generators, custom CT detectors, and a gantry ring with accurate precision control, significantly smaller than those found in standard CT scanners. “The scanner features a compressed power supply and cooling system that includes a smaller tube for emitting X– Rays,” adds Gregerson.
Continuing on its growth trajectory, Mobius Imaging will be developing several more enhanced technologies that include higher power X-Ray tubes and new detectors. With its increasing scope in the radiology sector, the company aims to achieve technological advancements alongside geographical expansion. “We are going to introduce the very first CT scanner that will be able to scan the patients in a standing position by next year,” exclaims Gregerson.
