Chapter 9 describes a vision of the future of radiology, focusing on the extraordinary possibilities for imaging to contribute to improved health, influenced by the transition of medical diagnosis and treatment to the molecular level, where much complex disease originates. It also provides readers with examples of how imaging could make care more convenient, safer, and more personalized than it is presently, as well as discussing the economic, regulatory, and cultural influences that will strongly influence whether the great potential of imaging will become reality.
