Abstract Predictions about the future of laboratory medicine have had a mixed success, and in some instances they have been overambitious and incorrectly assessed the future impact of emerging technologies. Current predictions suggest a more highly automated and connected future for diagnostic testing. The central laboratory of the future may be dominated by more robotics and more connectivity in order to take advantage of the benefits of the Internet of Things and artificial intelligence (AI… 

The role of the doctor in precision medicine

In the current context, precision medicine should be applied with caution, as a way to reduce the uncertainties of the patient’s clinical management, especially issues related with treatment of tumors and pharmacogenomics.

The end of Laboratory Medicine as we know it?

The conference will consider the impact that the on-going digitalization of technologies and a digitalized society will have on the medical laboratory in future health care. We contend that such

Intelligent Heart Disease Prediction on Physical and Mental Parameters: A ML Based IoT and Big Data Application and Analysis

Current experimental studies use machine learning (ML) algorithms to predict risk factors for a person’s heart disease, depending on several characteristics of the medical history, using Django, a website used to run a website.

Artificial intelligence (AI) in medicine, current applications and future role with special emphasis on its potential and promise in pathology: Present and future impact, obstacles including costs and acceptance among pathologists, practical and philosoph

The general principles of AI are defined first followed by a detailed discussion of its current role in medicine and a number of recent studies which demonstrate the usefulness of AI in the practice of surgical pathology are highlighted.

Surgical data science - from concepts toward clinical translation

Artificial intelligence (AI) in medicine, current applications and future role with special emphasis on its potential and promise in pathology: present and future impact, obstacles including costs and acceptance among pathologists, practical and philosophical considerations. A comprehensive review

AI has the potential to transform the practice of surgical pathology by ensuring rapid and accurate results and enabling pathologists to focus on higher level diagnostic and consultative tasks such as integrating molecular, morphologic and clinical information to make accurate diagnosis in difficult cases, determine prognosis objectively and in this way contribute to personalized care.

Surgical Data Science - from Concepts to Clinical Translation

An extensive review of current practice, key achievements and initiatives as well as available standards and tools for a number of topics relevant to surgical data science, namely technical infrastructure for data acquisition, storage and access in the presence of regulatory constraints.

Aging and eye tracking: in the quest for objective biomarkers

It is suggested that future research should involve a wider variety of oculometrics, in addition to saccadic metrics and pupillary responses, including nonlinear and combinatorial features as well as blink- and fixation-related metrics to develop biomarkers to trace age-related irregularities associated with cognitive and neural deficits.

The role of the doctor in precision medicine.

In this context, precision medicine takes into account individual genetic variability, environmental factors and lifestyle of each individual to find the best therapeutic and preventive approaches for specific groups.
