Thanks @jeremy for developing this! You have given me another reason to switch to fastai v2!

Also, it seems the submodule is still in its infancy. What are the future plans for the module?

The next walk-thru of the module is now available:

Plans are to support a full range of medical imaging modalities and activities, including microscopy, ultrasound, etc.

I also plan to create a fastai.medical.text module.

We’ve got a number of interesting projects starting at https://wamri.ai, across a wide range of datasets, institutions, and problems - hopefully the fastai.medical modules will be a useful foundation across all of them.

Nice work! This is very helpful, and I’m glad that other modalities are also planned.
