The precision medicine initiative is having a far-reaching impact on prevention and treatment strategies that take individual patient variability into account. Interventional radiology (IR), born as a specialty in which imaging guidance is employed as a tool for both diagnosis and therapy, is tailored to specific cases. In addition to the increasing role played by diagnostic imaging in precision medicine with radiomics, IR could assume a leading role in the transition toward precision medicine, particularly with regard to advances in image-guided biopsy techniques that enable the identification of the genomics and proteomics that drive tumor hyperproliferation, metastatic capabilities, and tumor angiogenesis mechanisms. This will help interventionalists to play a greater role in therapy selection; alter the need to use a specific drug and/or embolic material or device in the embolization procedure, both in emergency and elective settings; and promote the use of novel image-guided techniques that could increase the technical and clinical success of procedures, reducing the risk of complications.
This Special Issue aims to describe current developments in IR procedures that do not merely improve the diagnosis and treatment of patients, but promote IR as a specialty fully integrated with other disciplines, both clinical and surgical, and its role as a key tool in the decision-making process.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Personalized Medicine is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
