Researchers developing what they say would be the world’s smallest 3D camera suggest that it could revolutionize brain surgery, allowing surgeons to see tiny details inside the brain as they operate.

Scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, are developing a surgical endoscope that would be instrumental in carrying such a camera into the brain with the goal of faster, safer neurosurgery procedures.
