Chapter 3 – Making Medicine Even More Personalized
Personalized medicine has been positioned as the next exponential improvement in healthcare. Advances in genomics have enabled treatments to move from broad, blanket approaches that varied in effectiveness to more precise therapies specifically targeted to an individual’s genetic makeup. Radiomics offers the next chapter in this evolution to personalized care.
Radiomic data is a highly valuable addition to this dataset. By showing previously hidden trends within a lesion or tumor, Radiomics can be an early indicator of the effectiveness of the treatment.
