Midjourney Labs' AI-powered image generation platform enables quick creation of high-quality visuals based on text descriptions, useful for physicians to generate visual aids, educational materials, and enhance presentations.
While the tool has not been explicitly designed for healthcare or clinical contexts, leading clinicians are starting to use this tool for clinical and educational purposes. Example applications:
It's important to remember that any medical or health-related use of Midjourney's tool should be under the supervision of a clinician or healthcare professional. While the tool has the potential to enhance patient education, it's not a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. Always consult a healthcare provider for any questions you may have regarding a medical condition or treatment options.

/imagine a photorealistic diagram of the human circulatory system, inspired by the illustrative style of Frank Netter. The content should include detailed representations of the heart, veins, and arteries, with a focus on the flow of blood throughout the body. The medium should be a high-resolution digital illustration, with a level of detail that mimics a high-quality photograph. The style should be reminiscent of Frank Netter's medical illustrations, known for their clarity, detail, and use of color to highlight different anatomical features. The lighting should be bright and even, as if under a clinical examination light, to ensure all details are clearly visible. The colors should be realistic, with a palette that reflects the natural colors of the human body - rich reds for the blood, blues for the veins, and a range of flesh tones. The composition should be clear and focused, with a central view of the heart and branching views of the circulatory system. Use a high-resolution 16k format, with a 16:9 aspect ratio, version 5.1, raw style, quality 2, and size 750.
/imagine a photorealistic representation of blood cell morphology and hematological disorders, again in the style of Frank Netter. The content should include detailed depictions of healthy and diseased blood cells, with labels indicating different cell types and disorders. The medium should be a high-resolution digital illustration, with the precision and detail of a microscopic photograph. The style should echo Frank Netter's medical illustrations, with their clear, detailed, and color-coded representations. The lighting should be bright and direct, mimicking the light of a microscope. The colors should be realistic, with healthy cells in a range of natural reds and whites, and diseased cells in contrasting colors to highlight abnormalities. The composition should be clear and focused, with a central view of a blood smear and surrounding views of different cell types and disorders. Use a high-resolution 16k format, with a 16:9 aspect ratio, version 5.1, raw style, quality 2, and size 750.
In a recent article published in Ghost Medical, Midjourney AI Art Generator was found to struggle to make medically accurate art. As more and more users challenge AI to create and score medical images, the results will likely improve. If thousands of people had helped train the AI, the improvements would probably happen quickly.
