Call for papers: "Medical Imaging"

For a special issue of the International Journal of Image Mining.

In modern medicine, medical imaging has undergone major advancements and is used widespread for the majority of diagnosis. This ability to achieve information about any organism in the body has many useful clinical applications. Medical imaging is a great help in revealing internal structures hidden by the skin and bones, as well as to diagnose and treat disease. It also establishes a huge data storage of normal anatomy and physiology to make it possible to identify abnormalities. Different techniques are available in medical imaging such as ultrasound imaging, MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), medical x-ray imaging, computed tomography (CT), dental cone-beam computed tomography, mammography etc. which are used to diagnose, monitor, or treat medical conditions. Each type of technology gives different information about the area of the body being studied or treated, related to possible disease, injury, or the effectiveness of medical treatment.

This special issue will include a rich diversity of concepts, techniques, and applications of medical imaging. Research papers that focus on empirical studies and evaluations as well as conceptual papers will be considered for publication. Submitted papers will cover a wide range of topics of medical imaging.

We aim to create a common platform for motivated people through which research and development activities in the areas of medical imaging and relevant fields can accelerate, so that this platform will contribute towards the growth of the society as a whole.

In this regard, prospective authors/researchers are requested to submit quality original as well as review works within the scope mentioned. All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed and selected based on quality and relevance.

Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • Biomedical applications of medical imaging
  • Computed tomography (CT)
  • Computer-aided diagnosis and quantitative image analysis
  • Dental cone-beam computed tomography
  • Digital pathology
  • Echocardiography
