Abstract: The nature of diagnostic healthcare is changing dramatically, thanks in part to the development of cost effective technologies for whole slide digital scanning, and high-throughput genetic, genomic and epigenetic data collection. There is a consensus among clinicians and researchers that integrative, co-analysis of clinical, genomic, histopathological and radiological data will open new and important venues for personalized medicine strategies in the near future. I will outline some of the strategies we are developing for computational pathology, based on computer vision and machine learning, for early disease detection and diagnosis.
