Cellphone Medical Diagnosis

New software is being developed by American and Austrailian scientists that will allow a person to merely cough into their phone and obtain a diagnosis of their illness.  (Source: news.discovery.com)

The software measures the "type of cough" (dry or wet, productive or non-productive) and the "intensity" and can determine whether a virus or bacteria is causing the cough.  According to Dr Jaclyn Smith from University of Manchester "It could really improve disease diagnosis and help improve people's access to health care".
