The advancement of different medical imaging modalities was discussed and how medical imaging will also make a major difference in cancer management in the future by allowing doctors to select a therapy that matches a particular patient's needs. Whether it is optical tomography or molecular imaging, computerised tomography (CT) or ultrasound, or some technique or combination of technologies, medical imaging has already improved medical care and is poised to do more. Regardless of the exact path medical imaging takes, it is certain that it will continue to improve medical care, whether by diagnosing diseases earlier, formulating treatment plans that are perfectly suited to individual patients, or providing researchers with the understanding of structure and functions to help them understand the intricacies of disease initiation and progression so that they can devise drugs and other treatments to manage illnesses and possibly even cure them.
