It is called Midjourney and by simply describing what you want to see, it can paint, draw, photograph, or visualize a sculpture in a matter of minutes. It is the first truly versatile AI art generator and even though it has just arrived, it has already begun winning art competitions and stealing awards from well established and respected artists. This self-learning AI is gaining new skills quickly by creating millions of images a day that are graded by both admirers and critics. The experience of watching your words turning into images exactly as you described them makes it seem as though it is reading your mind, understanding your thoughts, and explaining your dreams.

The Ghost Medical team challenges Midjouney to produce medical illustrations, photographs, 3D renderings, and diagnostic images. This paper will reveal the capabilities and weaknesses of the AI. image generator as a medical art creation tool.
