At Business Insider's IGNITION conference on Monday, Mary Lou Jepsen, a former executive at Facebook and Google, discussed the technology being developed by her new company.




Openwater is working on a new kind of imaging technology that relies on ultrasound and infrared light.




The resolution of its system is better than that of MRI machines, Jepsen said.




The technology could be used to do everything from detecting cancers early to reading people's minds, she said.



Mary Lou Jepsen has some bold predictions about the impact the technology being developed by her new company, Openwater, will eventually have.
Openwater's new imaging system will upend the medical industry, allowing doctors to detect cancers sooner and monitor them more effectively, she says. It will give access to MRI-quality scans to millions of people around the world who can't afford them now. It will allow new types of medical procedures that will obviate the need for surgery to treat certain conditions.
It will also allow doctors to more effectively and precisely treat brain diseases such as schizophrenia and depression. And it might even allow people to essentially read each other's minds.
