ABSTRACT

In the modern ages of rapid technological and computational advances, development of numerous novel diagnostic imaging techniques have enabled not only visual detection of disease processes, but also provided the tools to achieve quantified functional, structural, dynamic, metabolic, and molecular information. A pathway toward the quantitative imaging by use of quantitative imaging biomarkers analysis has been widely opened, enabling further development of radiomics, radiogenomics, and radioproteinomics analysis in addition, and initiating the dawn of theranostics, eventually bringing the wishful personalised medicine concept closer to reality.

Key words: radiology, diagnostic imaging, quantitative imaging, quantitative imaging biomarkers, radiomics, personalised medicine.
