The Evolving Pattern That is Stella Atkins

Superman has x-ray vision, infrared vision, and several other "visions." He can peer inside you and detect the tiniest atomic particles. A physician with that kind of vision would be able to see the first individual cancer cell form in a tissue, or spot the first altered brain cell that might signal a future of multiple sclerosis. In fact, doctors are starting to approach Superman's powers. And SFU's Dr. Stella Atkins is helping them do it.
