There is also some mind-blowing technology coming up. There’s one called GAM (generalized additive model) which gives you the ability to take a data set generated for say, a CT, and without having to repeat the test, you can convert that into an MR image or an echo image.
HCB News: So GAM could take something in one modality and translate a difficult case into a modality where an organization has an absolute superstar available to offer expertise?
Totally. But the experts for GAM aren’t sitting in universities. They’re sitting in big data mining companies. This is something that comes up in discussions with my colleagues all the time — what will be the role of doctors in the future? We will probably farm out the low-level things to machine technology and add more value to the high-end tasks. We’ll probably be concentrating on things that make a big difference to the patient rather than spending as much of our time acquiring or interpreting images.
