Aims and Scope: Cardiovascular Engineering
Cardiovascular Engineering: An International Journal is established as a publishing forum to promote innovative methods and technological advancements in the basic understanding of the cardiovascular system and in cardiovascular diagnosis and treatment applications. The Journal will initially be published quarterly.
Manuscripts will be published as Original Contributions that outline new concepts and applications that include the general use of engineering methodologies to, and/or quantitative assessment of, the function of the cardiovascular system. Appropriate topics include cardiovascular mechanics, cardiology applications and diagnostic methods, cardiac/vascular imaging, devices and instrumentation, hemodynamic monitoring and measurements, cardiac assistance, vascular grafts and artificial hearts, cardiac electrophysiology techniques, computer modeling and drug delivery systems.
Manuscripts will be accepted and published as Rapid Communications articles if the content reflects the fast development of a new methodology or technique and its significance, if immediate.
Review Articles that are of interest to the general reader will also be published, but are limited to one or two such articles per issue.
A forum for debates with supporting documentation will be published as Controversies Articles. These may either invited or contributed articles from two prominent investigators in the field with opposing views.
Technical Notes will also be published that provides new findings or development of devices or techniques that are of wide interest.
