Building an MRI Scanner 60 Times Cheaper, Small Enough to Fit in an Ambulance Will Hopefully Improve Healthcare & Humanity
Matthew Rosen is a Harvard Professor, he and his colleagues at the MGH/A.A Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging in Boston are working on applications of advanced biomedical imaging technologies. He wants to liberate the MRI and democratize health care for the world. One of several projects is hacking a new kind of scanner that’s fast, small, and cheap. Using algorithms, they can use a weak magnetic field to get good images of our brains and other organs. Someday, people may not have to go to hospital for an MRI. The scanners may show up in sports arenas, battlefields, and even the backs of ambulances. Dr. Rosen shares his vision how biomedical imaging has evolved past, present and his views on where disruptive opportunities will be in 5, 10 and 20 years.
