Medical imaging genomic disease subtypes

The genomics revolution is happening introducing personalized medicine but slower than most of us involved had hoped. One issue is that a disease have multiple genetic causes making traditional methods difficult. Medical imaging has the potential to separate subtypes of a disease based on what is seen in the medical image. Hopefully there are fewer genes involved in the medical image subtype making the genetic causes easier to identify. This explains why I have moved from genomic research to medical image processing. And I love creating these images.
