Special Issue "The Application of Imaging Technology in Medical Intervention and Surgery"
A special issue of Journal of Imaging (ISSN 2313-433X).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 June 2021).
Interests: image-guided interventions; surgical navigation; visualization; augmented reality; image registration; instrument tracking
Imaging has played an important role in intervention and surgery since Roentgen made the first X-ray plate in 1895. Whether it was to diagnose a disease, or plan a treatment, imaging has played an increasingly dominant role in diagnosis, as well as in procedure planning and guidance. With the advent of computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, dynamic radiography, ultrasound, fluorescence imaging, positron emission tomography, and single photon emission computed tomography, the clinician has a wide array of tools to examine both structure and function of the human body. With an increasing desire to perform interventional procedures in a non-invasive fashion, medical imaging is also playing an increasingly important role in the guidance of procedures, that promises to render many surgical operations dramatically less invasive and more precise.
This Special Issue of Journal of Imaging aims to feature reports of recent advances in medical imaging technology that are specifically designed to facilitate the surgical procedure, novel applications of conventional imaging procedures to assist image-guided procedures, and innovative visualization technologies that can enhance the user interface between the surgeon and the patient.

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.
