The goal of this book is to provide in one brief and accessible volume a survey of the critical material involved in the design, implementation, and management of medical software, especially for “Software as a Medical Device” (SaMD). One will find more detailed treatments of many of the topics covered in this book in specialized books that focus on some of the topics we cover (e.g., Software Engineering and Machine Learning). Our hope is to familiarize the reader with the span of topics he or she may need in entering this field and to provide pointers to more specialized publications as this becomes necessary. We also address the challenges created by the increasing use of big data and artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML) techniques. We include a detailed description of an example project, the design of an image-guided neurosurgery application, to illustrate the core concepts in the book.
