Personalized Medicine Powered by Precision Imaging

Meet world-renowned experts from the UCSF Department of Radiology & Biomedical Imaging, who are using and developing new and innovative precision imaging tools to enhance diagnosis, improve disease monitoring, and optimize treatment in the individual patient. In close partnership with subspecialty physicians from other UCSF departments, radiologists are now able to use these tools to pinpoint and better treat disorders such as prostate cancer, breast cancer and degenerative spine and joint disease at earlier stages. This series of lectures will explain how emerging technologies – including specific artificial intelligence platforms – will rely upon imaging to dramatically improve accuracy, safety, and outcomes for patients in the very near future.
