Engineers harness cell phone technology for use in medical imaging

f health care for the developing world," said Rubinsky. "Health professionals in rural clinics could affordably get the tools they need to properly diagnose and treat their patients."

The researchers said this system could work with any cell phone capable of sending and receiving multimedia messages such as graphics, video and audio clips. "The size of the data in the study was only 6 kilobytes, which is ridiculously small," said Granot, the Ph.D. student on the research team. "A one sentence, text-only e-mail message is bigger than that."

As for concerns about dropped calls, "there is no medical application that would not allow us to redial a line," said Granot. "Transmitting voice signals is actually more challenging than sending this imaging data, so it shouldn't be a serious problem."

Rubinsky said the screen size of a cell phone should not be a major impediment since "people are able to watch full movies on their iPods."

"In my opinion, this concept would be valuable for developed nations as well," said Rubinsky. "One of the main problems of medical care is the increased cost of health care. It may be worthwhile to consider this as a way of reducing the cost of medical imaging."
