Question
Dear Dr Kulkarni

Do you feel there will be advantages in Interfacing Digital Portable X rays machine with Smartphones if technically feasible?

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
Prashant,
I don't think integrating xray machines in smart phones is good. One thing is xray radiations are teratogenic n long exposure could lead to mutations n cancer. So if such smartphone gets into common man's hands then it could lead to health problems and crimes. It can easily breach people's privacy also. So integration with smartphone is bad. Rather making separate portable xray machines which are accessible to only hospital n registered medical practitioner would be much acceptable. You ask an emergency medicine doctor his opinion about such portable xray machines. Why are you asking these questions by the way?

Thanking you!
