Instead it uses ultrasound, which "sees through" your tissues and blood to create three dimensional images from inside the body. This is a big step up, since most internal medical imaging devices used today only show your body in cross-section.

The new chip, created by F. Levent Degertekin and his colleagues at Georgia Tech University, doesn't take pictures directly since blood and tissue are not transparent to visible light, Degertekin said in an email to Business Insider.
It will be especially useful for people with blocked — or occluded — arteries, the researchers said.
"Our device will allow doctors to see the whole volume that is in front of them within a blood vessel," Degertekin said in a press release. "This will give cardiologists the equivalent of a flashlight so they can see blockages ahead of them in occluded arteries. It has the potential for reducing the amount of surgery that must be done to clear these vessels."
