Doctors and engineers from Duke University and Stanford University show how with a few cents’ worth of 3D-printed materials, a microchip common to smartphones, a few wires, and a laptop, a 2D ultrasound machine can capture 3D images of infants’ brains with similar quality to MRI or CT scans while the baby is held in a parent’s arms.
