Breast cancer ribbon

A new technology for phones being developed in Israel could help doctors preform remote breast cancer checks by adding an infrared camera and a bit of software. By detecting temperature differences and oxygen flow, the phones could be a definite leap over self-checks, and Israeli provider Cellcom is already attempting to work the infrared sensor into current phone cameras. The technology could also be used to detect heart problems, and seems much less invasive than most other such solutions we've seen.
