Why medical technology often doesn’t make it from drawing board to hospital
This article, published under a cc licence, so freely available, criticises “free” software and not providing incentives to make it robust enough and easy enough for clinical use. The conversation is not peer-reviewed, but is a voice for academics, who are used to peer scrutiny.
I do not know the field, but I can see that there is huge scope for tools to help visualisation of scans that might make them easier to interpret.
But I suspect it is a bit naïve to blame “incentives”, and it sounds a bit neolib to me. But somebody more expert in the area may have better grounds for comment.
The article can have comments made about it, and I think you can be confident that the author will see them and respond.
