polarized light field imaging

X-Ray alternative
  [vote for,

Use Polarized light field imaging for dental imaging and osteography.

For dental use, a fixture could be made with a camera on one side and light on the other, which could then be set inside the mouth with no need for body protection, an external room or a special technician.

The light could be slightly moved around if it is being blocked in any way, and the dentist could then decide how to operate immediately with no wait.

For body testing, it would replace mammography.

       Are you sure polarized light can accomplish this?   

       Polarized light is already used for imaging stresses in transparent plastic.

       No, it would work absolutely fine, unless you wanted to image opaque tissue, such as muscle, bone or sinew.

       Teeth are transparent to light?

       I think what's missing here is any sort of explanation.
