Where smart medical devices should go
Smart medical devices that use automated image processing to assist clinicians especially in low resource healthcare systems can be developed and have an immediate impact in low resource healthcare systems. Algorithms and software are available to assist medical clinicians in diagnosis and treatment planning. Not many of these system are in clinical practice because high resource developed healthcare systems have human experts that can do an excellent job. Low resource healthcare systems lack the necessary experts and the software that exists today could make an immediate impact.
