Cloud Computing and Kids With Cancer
When it comes to computing power guys and girls in the medical field use lot of computing power but they rarely understand the logic behind computer power but they want reliable logistic to back up their failing clinical acumen.
MRI is a good example where the human eye fails to beat a computer eye of imaging.
When it comes to cancer early detection is mandatory and we are yet to develop cellular level tagging mechanisms to detect early cancer. It is possible but with genome project well in advance scope for personalized treatment for cancer is breaking news.
Following is a statement regarding a cancer that come early in life and amenable to treatment probably if diagnosed early with genomic tagging mechanism to evaluate the effect of treatment.
How can the cloud computing help?
If all the current data available is put to a “Cloud Cluster” and then this information can be shared with the rest of the world. Computer resources are centralized but the actual clinical data are shared.
Instead of one institute putting their eggs (expenses) in one basket we are going to have eggs planted all over the planet and share the cost of computing.
Prototypes are emerging and it is a very good thing in medical filed.
Already we have an enormous amount of information in the Medical Library Systems an often this information is redundant if not put into good use.
It is time WHO wakes up and see the potential and develop it.
It has to be integrated with the curricula of medical training programs.
Below is an attempt to integrate data into a Cloud Cluster.
I hope this experiment generate impetus for far bigger projects.
“It’s easier to develop treatments for adult patients because there is typically a large sample of people to study and there’s a wider variety of FDA-approved drugs and dosages to choose from, Jeffrey Trent, president and research director of the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen), said at Thursday’s press conference. TGen will operate the cluster at its facility in Phoenix”.
