Medical Tricorder

Aspen Medical

I got to use a device at lunch-hour today that had aspects of a medical tricorder, the near magical medical scanning devices used first by the fictional Dr. McCoy on the Starship Enterprise. This modern, non-invasive scanner can look at skin and detect signs of diabetes, giving the user an indication if they do or do not need further screening soon.

I got a negative score of less than 50. Woo Hoo!
Aspen Medical screening for Diabetes

This continues my longstanding tradition of sharing my non-embarrassing medical test results on the Internet, so I don’t feel so bad when eventually Sask Health or a doctor loses/destroys them ;-)
