Development of ecosystems for precision medicine

The genomic and post-genomic age promises much for clinical medicine, largely because we can now comprehensively sequence genomic DNA to identify polymorphisms, patterns and mutations. We can also measure gene expression routinely and systematically and with high sensitivity measure the amounts of proteins produced.
Computational Imaging and Precision Medicine
Posted 30th September 2016 by Jane Williams
The digitization of tissue glass slides is clearly opening up exciting opportunities as well as challenges to the world of computational imaging scientists. It is clear that while computational imaging can clearly play a role in better quantitative characterization of disease and precision medicine, there still remain a number of substantial technical and computational challenges that need to be overcome before computer assisted image analysis of digital pathology can become part of the routine clinical diagnostic workflow.
