Paul Anderson  asked the Naked Scientists:
Hi Chris and team,

The other day I was musing on wearing an electronic shirt for monitoring pain or other bodily measurements. If the collar of the shirt is used as a reference point, by triangulation could the electronics of the shirt determine the origin of a pain signal? That is the depth into the body and thereby know whether it came from a kidney or whatever?

What do you think?

WOW.... Is that a possibility of future diagnosing technologies?
How would electronics pick up pain from the human body.. How would that work...?
