Cell phones as diagnostic tools in areas without ultrasound & X-Ray machines via Book of Joe.

A professor of bioengineering at the University of California, Berkeley and his colleagues have developed a cheaper way to perform medical imaging using a cellular phone.

Boris Rubinsky’s team has developed a portable medical scanner that can be plugged into a cellular phone, which transmits raw ultrasound or X-ray scanning data to a remote computer processor. The computer then converts the data to images and relays these back for viewing on the cell phone screen.

Engineers harness cell phone technology for use in medical imaging & video.
