The Journal of Digital Imaging (JDI) is the official peer-reviewed journal of the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM). JDI's goal is to enhance the exchange of knowledge encompassed by the general topic of Imaging Informatics in Medicine including, but not limited to, research and practice in clinical, engineering, information technologies and techniques in all medical imaging environments.

Topics of interest to the readers of JDI include the following as they pertain to the acquisition, storage, retrieval and use of imaging information in healthcare to efficiently and effectively improve access and quality:

  • PACS and component systems
  • Imaging informatics for the enterprise
  • Image-enabled electronic medical records
  • Integrating mobile technologies
  • RIS, HIS and other clinical information systems
  • Digital image acquisition, transmission, storage, display and interpretation
  • 3D (e.g. printing, modeling, display)
  • SIIM Workflow Initiative in Medicine (SWIM)
  • DICOM and other standards
  • IHE
  • Imaging vocabularies and ontologies
  • Analytics
  • Workflow and process modeling and simulation
  • Protocolling and appropriateness
  • Structured reporting
  • Speech recognition
  • Content-based image retrieval
  • Meaningful use and legislative issues
  • Decision support
  • Radiation dose management
  • Teleradiology
  • Archiving and information lifecycle management
  • Network integrity and data security
  • Multimedia
  • Facilities design
  • Project management
  • Quality assurance
  • Online learning
  • Imaging informatics education

Papers that report on validation and implementation of informatics technologies and tools will be given precedence over papers that simply describe image processing algorithms, stand-alone evaluation of image analysis tools, and/or technology descriptions without validation or implementation.

  • 96% of authors who answered a survey reported that they would definitely publish or probably publish in the journal again
