Medical Scanning with Cellphones
Scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, have developed a new, relatively inexpensive alternative to medical imaging using a cell phone. Bioengineering professor Boris Rubinsky and his team have designed a portable medical scanner that can be plugged into a mobile phone which can gather and transmit X-ray or ultrasound data to an external, remote computer processor. After the processor converts the raw data, it immediately sends the imaging back to the cellphone screen for analysis.
