Medical Diagnosis

Diagnosis is the first step in medical care. Typically, a patient will consult a health care provider who will perform one or more diagnostic tests including measuring blood pressure, taking pulse, listening to heart beat or prescribe pathological and/or imaging. A hypothesis of possible cause of disease is developed based on these tests and a treatment plan is formulated. Diagnostic imaging including radiology, ultrasound, CT, MRI and X-ray is now widely used in clinical diagnosis. There is a significant role that MSI will play in further advancing and automating the diagnosis process. This will include fundamental advances in imaging technology as well as image analysis methods and elastographic techniques for noninvasive interrogation of tissue health, telemedicine and telediagnostic tools and technology and novel diagnostic methods.
