X-ray imaging methods and techniques today play a key role in many research areas and applied studies of Physics and Engineering, and the potential of X-ray imaging has made radiography and computed tomography fundamental tools to gain knowledge in the most diverse fields, from medical diagnostics to the characterization of materials and industrial components, up to the evaluation of the state of conservation of a Cultural Heritage object.
The design and development of new detectors and X-ray sources and the increase of computing power have allowed us to obtain results that were once unthinkable in terms of image quality and spatial resolution, enabling the visualization of submicron details. Research in this field is highly active due to the multiple applications of X-ray imaging.
This Special Issue aims to bring expertise and competences in different fields of X-ray imaging together, covering the main branches of X-ray imaging and being suitable for a broad audience.
This Special Issue invites researchers to submit original research papers or review articles related to any discipline in which X-ray radiography and tomography are considered. The topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- X-ray radiography;
- X-ray computed tomography;
- NDT—Nondestructive testing;
- X-ray imaging in Cultural Heritage studies;
- Medical Imaging;
- Phase-contrast X-ray imaging;
- Emerging X-ray imaging methods and instrumentations;
- Cutting-edge technology for X-ray imaging;
- X-ray microscopy;
- Synchrotron radiation X-ray imaging;
- New-generation X-ray sources;
- Color tomography;
- 4D tomography;
- Dissemination projects involving X-ray imaging and new technologies (animation, virtual and augmented reality, 3D printing, etc.).

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.
