Medical imaging is widely adopted in Hospitals and medical institutes, and new ways to improve existing medical imaging services are regularly exploited. This paper describes the adoption of Cloud Computing is useful for medical education and research, and describes the methodology, results and lesson learned. A working Bioinformatics Cloud platform can demonstrate computation and visualisation of brain imaging. The aim is to study segmentation of brains, which divides the brain into ten major regions. The Cloud platform has these two functions: (i) it can highlight each region for ten different segments; and (ii) it can adjust intensity of segmentation to allow basic study of brain medicine. Two types of benefits are reported as follows. Firstly, all the medical student participants are reported to have 20% improvement in their learning satisfaction. Secondly, 100% of volunteer participants are reported to have positive learning experience.
