From the Ted Talk by Mary Lou Jepsen: How we can use light to see deep inside our bodies and brains

Unscramble the Blue Letters

This is an MRI machine. It's a few mliilon dollars, it fills a room, many ppeole have probably been in one. I've snpet a lot of time in one. It has a focus of about a millimeter — kind of cnkhuy, compared to what I just sohwed you. A system based on our technology could elnbae dramatically lower cost, higher resolution and semllar medical imaging. So that's what we've started to do. My team and I have built a rig, a lab rig to scan out tissue. And here it is in action. We wanted to see how good we could do. We've built this over the last year. And the result is, we're able to find tumors in this sample — 70 millimeters deep, the light going in here, half a millimeter rluteoosin, and that's the tumor it found.

Original Text

This is an MRI machine. It's a few million dollars, it fills a room, many people have probably been in one. I've spent a lot of time in one. It has a focus of about a millimeter — kind of chunky, compared to what I just showed you. A system based on our technology could enable dramatically lower cost, higher resolution and smaller medical imaging. So that's what we've started to do. My team and I have built a rig, a lab rig to scan out tissue. And here it is in action. We wanted to see how good we could do. We've built this over the last year. And the result is, we're able to find tumors in this sample — 70 millimeters deep, the light going in here, half a millimeter resolution, and that's the tumor it found.
