Molecular Imaging in Genomic Medicine
Molecular imaging is the result of advances in the fields of molecular biology and imaging technology and has become an increasingly important tool in the discovery and understanding of a wide range of pathophysiologic processes, ranging from genetic disorders to malignant conditions. The advancement in molecular pathology techniques has enabled us to study the complex genotype of disease entities and how it impacts their behaviour and natural history. Image‐guided genomic medicine utilises methodologies to integrate genomic and radiologic data to develop insights into the genotype–phenotype relationship, which in turn can guide medical decision‐making and treatment planning.
