3D Sensors May Help Detect Breast Cancer, Track Vitals

Forbes (12/30) contributor Jennifer Hicks writes that Vayyar’s 3D low-power sensors “can see through skin and tissue to detect breast or other cancer masses, peek through walls to detect structural foundations or fractures and track a person’s location and vital signs as they move through a smart home.” The technology “creates a 3D image based on radio frequency (RF) waves which allow Vayyar’s sensors to look into and inside an object and detect an image of what’s inside.” So far, the company has “used their 3D sensor technology in an in-vivo trial in an Israeli hospital in 2015 and is adding another hospital in 2016.”
