Smart Phones in Medical Situations

Smart phones have infiltrated all aspects of our modern life. However they are currently held back from aiding in surgery under Australian Law? Is this for the best for the sake of privacy or should we open ourselves up to using these technologies wherever they can aid us? 

Digital image capture devices like smartphones are an integral part of our society. They’re currently not utilized in the medical industry though due to privacy concerns with significant ethical and security implications. Some have argued that it is necessary to change these laws due as they may help the medical field to save lives. We had Adrian Dyer, an Associate Professor at RMIT University chat with Sam Baran about this.
