Cell phone finds use as diagnostic tool in areas without ultrasound, X-ray machines

AHN, May 13, 2008
A professor of bioengineering at the University of California, Berkeley and his colleagues have 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. The concept is a cheaper and easier alternative to conventional medical scanning service because one computer server does the imaging for many scanners.
