Hosted by the University of California, this talk by John Chang and Dean Reese on the topic off new medical devices that will be available in the near future.

We live in a time where miraculous medical discoveries are occurring all the time. Regrettably many of the miracle tools, because of their size and complexity, are confined to state of the art medical centers in large cities. Learn about efforts to build new medical tools in the hope of saving lives in remote and hard to reach places in the world. Hear about new efforts to build medical tools to determine life threatening traumatic injuries to the head and torso by using the Micropower Ultrwideband Impulse Radar (MUIR).
