Our June issue of Tech Briefs highlighted a radar system that enables touch-free monitoring of heart sounds. A significant advantage offered by radar, according to the system’s inventors, is the fact that the values are recorded digitally and are thus not subjective, allowing human error to be increasingly ruled out during the diagnosis of anomalies or diseases. (Read the Tech Brief for more details.)
The team from the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg says that its mobile radar system could replace the stethoscope.
What do you think? Will Mobile Radar Replace the Stethoscope?
