Abstract:
Worldwide,the vast majority of healthcare spending goes to treatment, with only a small fraction of total expenditures devoted to prediction, diagnosis, and treatment monitoring. Traditional methods of disease management are reactive – we wait until someone is sick before treating the disease with expensive procedures. A radical departure from this approach is required to reduce overall costs and improve outcomes. The key is to shift from diagnosing symptomatic patients to detecting disease in a presymptomatic population, i.e. to shift to personalized healthcare delivery. Personalized healthcare enabled by molecular medicine will be predictive and preventative, probing an individual’s unique biology to assess the probability of developing various diseases and then designing appropriate treatments, even before the onset of symptoms. This transformation of healthcare delivery can radically shift healthcare expenditures, reducing the amount spent on treatment and substantially increasing the amount spent on prediction and diagnosis with the expectation that the overall costs of healthcare delivery can be significantly reduced while simultaneously improving outcomes. The fundamental hypotheses driving the molecular imaging studies presented in this talk are that personalized medicine will significantly improve healthcare delivery, molecular imaging and therapy are critical to this paradigm, and ultrasound will be one of the major enablers of molecular imaging and therapy.
