Future of Digital Pathology
We are living in an exciting time when disease diagnostics and treatment are becoming more accurate and patient specific. Computerized imaging methods are beginning to assist the pathologist and radiologist in making an accurate diagnosis of disease and identify morphological features correlated with prognosis. Molecular profiling of disease promises to help the clinician understand the underlying biology of the disease and suggest new and more effective therapeutics.
The goal of our research is aimed at a future when disease diagnostics will involve the quantitative integration of multiple sources of diagnostic data, including genomic, imaging, proteomic and metabolic data acquired across multiple scales/resolutions that can distinguish between individuals or between subtle variations of the same disease to guide therapy.
