Medicine of the future: New microchip technology could be used to track 'smart pills'
Publication/Creation DateSeptember 12 2017
Description"Researchers at Caltech have developed a prototype miniature medical device that could ultimately be used in "smart pills" to diagnose and treat diseases. A key to the new technology -- and what makes it unique among other microscale medical devices -- is that its location can be precisely identified within the body, something that proved challenging before."
