Invasion of the Body Scanners: Innovations in Biomedical Engineering
EDITOR'S INTRODUCTION | Developments in ultrasonic microscopy may soon provide noninvasive solutions to the treatment of medical problems. In this interview with Fathom, Matthew O'Donnell, the Jerry W. and Carol L. Levin Professor of Engineering at the University of Michigan, discusses the rise of the biomedical engineering discipline, the relationship between engineering and the medical profession, and the advances his laboratory has made in the creation of biosensing scanners and in medical imaging. In particular, O'Donnell talks about the development of a handheld ultrasonic body scanner to help identify blood clots in postsurgical patients and another device that will improve techniques used in LASIK eye surgery.
