Hmm, do I see a potential application for Tele-Pathology?
The University of California, Berkeley, developed a cell phone incorporating a microscope to capture and transmit pictures, which researchers hope will allow patients in remote areas to send images of red blood cells and other diagnostic information to medical specialists.
The device comes in two versions:
A magnification of about 5 times, for taking images of moles and rashes
A magnification of about 60 times, for capturing the details of blood cells and parasites
