Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Medical imaging is becoming an essential component in various fields of biomedical research and clinical practice: Neuroscientists detect regional metabolic brain activity from positron emission tomography (PET), functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and magnetic resonance spectrum imaging (MRSI) scans. Biologists study cells and generate 3D confocal microscopy data sets. Virologists generate 3D reconstructions of viruses from micrographs. Radiologists identify and quantify tumors from MRI and computed tomography (CT) scans.

On the other hand, image processing includes the analysis, enhancement, and display of biomedical images. Image reconstruction and modeling techniques allow instant processing of 2D signals to create 3D images. Image processing and analysis can be used to determine the diameter, volume, and vasculature of a tumor or organ, flow parameters of blood or other fluids, and microscopic changes that have yet to raise any otherwise discernible flags. Image classification techniques help to detect subjects suffering from particular diseases and to detect disease-related regions.

This Special Issue aims to provide a diverse, but complementary, set of contributions to demonstrate new developments and applications in the field of medical imaging and image processing.

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. Technologies is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1400 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.
