Engineers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have created a stamp-sized sticker that can provide live, high-resolution scans of blood vessels and internal organs.

According to a paper published in Science, a Wearable Medical device can provide 48 hours of continuous Ultrasonic Scans of Internal Organs.

Diagnostic and monitoring tools for a wide range of diseases, including some heart conditions, pregnancy-related complications, and several types of cancers, could be enabled by the stickers, which are 2 by 3 centimeters.

The senior author of the study is a professor of mechanical engineering and civil and environmental engineering at MIT. This is a breakthrough in medical devices.

Insider asked Zhao for comment, but he did not reply immediately.

The engineers behind the stickers are working on creating a wireless version of the devices that would allow patients to wear them at home.

"We envision a few patches adhering to different locations on the body, and the patches would communicate with your cellphone, where artificial intelligence would analyze the images on demand," he said. You could see your internal organs with a few patches on your body.
