A scanner the size of an iPhone that you could hold up to a person’s chest and see a vivid, moving, 3D image of what’s inside is being developed by a US entrepreneur .
The entrepreneur has raised $100 million to create a medical imaging device that’s nearly “as cheap as a stethoscope” and will “make doctors 100 times as effective.” The technology, which according to patent documents relies on a new kind of ultrasound chip, could eventually lead to new ways to destroy cancer cells with heat, or deliver information to brain cells.
However – this is not a monopoly – the University of California is on the same trail. . .
