Call for papers: 4D Medical Imaging and 4D Radiation Therapy

Call for papers: 4D Medical Imaging and 4D Radiation Therapy

A special issue of International Journal of Biomedical Engineering and Technology

This special issue presents a collection of manuscripts that discuss novel and innovative applications of 4D medical imaging in radiation oncology, called 4D radiation therapy. It focuses on critical issues pertaining to 4D medical imaging, including time-resolved volumetric CT, MRI, MRSI, PET, PET/CT, and SPECT imaging and other emerging imaging modalities. Particular emphasis will be put on novel and unique applications of these 4D imaging modalities in 4D radiation therapy, including 4D simulation, 4D treatment planning, 4D pre-treatment verification, and 4D treatment delivery.

Subjects include, but are not limited to the following topics:
  • 4D computed tomography (CT)
  • 4D multi-detector-row CT (MDCT)
  • 4D cone-beam CT (CBCT)
  • 4D Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • 4D magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging (MRSI)
  • 4D positron emission tomography (PET)
  • 4D single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT)
  • 4D PET/CT
  • 4D ultrasound (US)
  • Other emerging imaging modalities
  • 4D image reconstruction
  • 4D image enhancement, registration, segmentation, and visualization
  • 4D radiation therapy simulation
  • 4D treatment planning
  • 4D pre-treatment verification
  • 4D treatment delivery
