Stamp-Sized Stickers Can See Inside the Body

Engineers at MIT are developing an adhesive device capable of providing continuous ultrasound imaging of internal organs, and it's no bigger than a stamp.

“We imagine we could have a box of stickers, each designed to image a different location of the body,” says the study’s senior author, Xuanhe Zhao , professor of mechanical engineering and civil and environmental engineering at MIT. “We believe this represents a breakthrough in wearable devices and medical imaging.”
