Apparently, your iPhone can diagnose cancer now
A Denver-based surgeon, Dr John Martin has shared that he was able to detect a cancerous mass in his throat using an iPhone, news.com.au reports.
Apparently, the 59-year-old vascular surgeon used an ultrasound device connected to an iPhone, called the Butterfly iQ, which allowed him to scan his throat and the results indicated the mass was made up of cancerous cells.
After additional medical advice was taken Dr Martin had the cancer removed.
The iPhone ultrasound technology has been created by Butterfly Network – the company Dr Martin works with; further proving our smartphones can seriously do everything these days…
According to The Daily Mail, Dr Martin has completed six weeks of radiation and doctors believe he should make a full recovery.
