Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Biomechanical imaging (BMI) has spread during the last decade as a promisng and powerful tool in biomedicine with increasing fields of application. Knowledge of mechanical properties of biological tissues such as elastic modulus, stiffness, viscosity, or viscoelasticity are crucial to understanding the structural integrity and organization that allow mechanobiology to function as a biomarker for distinguishing between health and diseased tissues. Current methods to measure biomechanical properties, such as tridimensional elasticity imaging, ultrasound elastography, and acoustic model-based imaging technologies have demonstrated in vivo biomechanical tridimensional resolution in biomedical imaging. Those imaging techniques have been expanded in parallel with computational and predictive methods in biomechanics for resolving inverse problems of viscoelastic nonlinearity of biological tissues.

We request contributions presenting imaging techniques that will contribute to highlighting the current state of the art in biomechanical imaging as well as computational models contributing to the study of mechanobiology.

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 papers will be 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 Imaging 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 1600 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.
