Medical imaging (MI) is now an explosive field since the technologies for visualizing the body structure and functions have become increasingly various and powerful. Imaging is at the core of medical practice, as most patients are likely to undergo imaging scans during care both for diagnostic and disease monitoring purposes. Automated intelligent postprocessing analyses are fundamental for MI where images are the result of numerical processing of raw data to extract meaningful information and have wide application in all aspects, including sampling and reconstruction, filtering, compression, processing, registration, fusion, and interpretation. In recent years, in addition to classical tools, artificial intelligence is increasingly playing a decisive role in optimizing and lowering time acquisition to reduce exposure to potentially harmful radiations; reduce motion artifacts and noise; improve image quality; increase information by registering images from different modalities; identify image structures; objectively monitor disease progression; and facilitate analysis and early detection of diseases. This Special Issue aims to explore innovative advanced techniques for MI in different fields, including but not limited to MRI and fMRI, CT, EEG, US, IR, PET, SPECT, and combined modalities.

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.
