A Bank-Robbing Medical Device?
Is there anything an endoscope can’t do? One eagle-eyed reader sent me this amazing story. It seems everyone’s favorite precision medical device has been put to a highly unusual use: ripping off ATMs in Kuala Lumpur:
Police believe that the recent thefts of medical equipment are linked to the spate of automated teller machine (ATM) break-ins. . . .Sources told the New Straits Times that endoscopes were being used to examine the contents of ATMs.
Leave aside the part about stealing cash: this is a pretty good example of what endoscopes can do. Their amazing versatility allows sinus surgeons to image the interior of your sinuses with astonishing clarity, giving them a clean look at the internal structures and allowing for safer surgery.
Substitute the intricate machinery of an automated teller machine for the intricate machinery of your sinuses, and this story clearly demonstrates that no engineering issue is too complex to be diagnosed and, yes, defeated with the help of a nasal endoscope.
