Visions of Star Trek


"Bones" McCoy's medical scanner is in the developmental stage by U.S. Advanced Research Agency (DARPA). Using ultrasound transducers to heal internal bleeding is the basis of the treatment.

"The DBAC program will develop a portable, light-weight, non-evasive, automated system for detection, localization,and coagulation of serious internal bleeding."

Your link is going to a pdf file. You should locate another web page with that information and ask a mod to repoint it to this instead. Interesting article though.

  But the medical tricorder  
only scanned. Mayby they are thinking about the salt and pepper shakers that McCoy used.

The tricorder scanned, but another device could fix internal hemorrhage. I believe they were part of the same unit.

Oh no, those were Phasers. :) And didn't they use some kind of probe for internal hemorrhoids?
