Australia keeps failing to see the opportunity of AI

Malignant. Benign. If a picture tells a thousand words, these are the two jostling foremost in a patient’s mind when a radiologist scans their body for a better image of that suspicious lump or mass.But there is so much more a picture can tell us about cancer, particularly if we consider the possibilities of artificial intelligence.
