Precision Diagnosis.jpg

Through improved detection and precision sampling we can help the early diagnosis of diseases

Over the years, the human body has become increasingly more transparent with conventional medical imaging providing detailed anatomical information of organs. The detection of disease has traditionally relied on detecting changes in organs at the macroscopic level. However, newer functional or molecular imaging strategies can now detect cellular and molecular changes, thereby detecting diseases early, even before they cause any anatomical changes. These changes can then be used for targeted tissue sampling (i.e. biopsies) which will then provide unique molecular signatures of diseases specific for each patient (i.e. Precision Diagnosis), such that custom and tailored Precision Therapies can then be developed to improve disease responses and overall outcomes.

Augmented and Virtual Reality The interventional suite is a complex environment that requires the integration of multiple complex imaging modalities with different technologies and equipment. We are exploring ways we can bring this all into the control of the interventional physician during procedures through augmented and virtual reality to allow them to be able to operate with all the required information within their immediate reach in a “heads up display”, analogous to what we currently use in cars. These technologies allow for a more efficient integration of all the information required to target and sample tissues for precision diagnosis.
