Young Brisbane doctor invents app to help early detection of prostate cancer
Brisbane: Alan Jones talks with Brisbane doctor Elliot Smith who has invented an app to help men track their PSA levels and detect prostate cancer.
The name of the app is Maxwell Plus.
“Maxwell Plus, funnily enough, is named after a physicist James Maxwell, a lot of the work that I did in my PhD, designing medical imaging equipment, revolved around Maxwell’s equations and made MRI scans possible,” Dr Smith told Mr Jones. “We have a service that connects men to doctors, and those doctors are using this artificial intelligence.
“In very simple terms, (artificial intelligence is) algorithms and processes that we’ve trained the computer to undertake, to look through data, trends in blood test data, medical image data, to help pull out signs that might be indicative and help those clinicians make quick, accurate and reliable decisions.”
