6 amazing things scientists and doctors are doing with smartphones

3. Manipulating real-time brain scan images

Although smartphone brain scanners have been in the works for a few years, an application called ?Resolution MD Mobile? has revolutionised the idea. Doctors have been able to accurately diagnose strokes, allowing them to see and manipulate 3D images of a patient’s brain on the smartphone as the stroke is happening.

But doctors can do far more than just look at images, they can cut into them and rotate said images in 3D. This allows them to analyse on the spot, which proves critical in making a diagnosis. And unlike other apps which take ten to 20 minutes to download images, time is crucial during a stroke ? a breakthrough with its instant and secure results.

Now imagine how such technology could advance in a few years time?
