Recent advances in computerized medical imaging and associated areas of basic and applied sciences, engineering, medicine and computing technologies have created a synergy among researchers and scientists to explore complex issues related to the onset of critical diseases for better understanding of physiological processes from molecular to organ and behavioral levels. Future trends are expected to continue to develop more complex and sophisticated tools in the investigation of biological functional and pathologies associated with the onset of critical diseases for early diagnosis, treatment, evaluation and interventional protocols. This chapter points out some areas and challenges of future technology development with potential applications.
