How about one that can give you an MRI just by taking a photo? That would sell by the bucket loads, athletes would love this, check for injuries that haven't revealed themselves like achilles ruptures and such.

If the spectrum were nailed down just right, I'm sure they could get it to penetrate just right in order to image tumors or growths. This could also come in handy for EMTs that arrive on-scene of an injury so they could see the extent of the dammage in order to consider the best possible action to take regarding the injury.

That is what they're trying to accomplish, it's not just to look at boobies through clothes.

Oh man. can you imagine if Apple got ahold of this and ran with it? "I think i have cancer..." "Well lemme look at my phone and see!" (Iphone Auto Correct comes into effect)

I can just see the gov'ment locking up anything even approaching this technology. Can't have it, "Its a MEDICAL Device. Go see your doctor."
