Using Light to See Deep Inside Our Bodies and Brains

Using Light to See Deep Inside Our Bodies and Brains

Red light could provide for enhanced imaging functionality, enabling the tracking of tumors and improved diagnostics.

By TED08.27.18
In a series of mind-bending demos, inventor Mary Lou Jepsen shows how we can use red light to see and potentially stimulate what's inside our bodies and brains. Taking us to the edge of optical physics, Jepsen unveils new technologies that utilize light and sound to track tumors, measure neural activity and could possibly replace the MRI machine with a cheaper, more efficient and wearable system.
