SCIENCE STUDIO: Better Medical Machines

Mayo Clinic

  In a rebroadcast from Feb. 27, 2011, Keith & Russ talk with Kevin Bennet of the Mayo Clinic.  Bennet had engineering on the brain from the start: as a young boy, he built x-ray machine to sneak a peak at his Christmas gifts.  He is now using his engineering talents to develop equipment and machines to improve patient care through non-invasive microsurgery...with a special focus on deep brain stimulation.
