Call for Papers: Special Issue on "Biomedical Device Design and Medical Image Processing (BDD&MIP)"

Advancements in biomedical devices and instruments as well as image processing have resulted in a plethora of new applications in diagnostic, interventional and therapeutic treatments. These applications offer the possibility of new surgical methods, drug delivery and improvement in clinical diagnosis while lessening the burden and workload placed on clinicians. Additionally, these emerging technologies may reduce complexity or lower cost and provide improved healthcare options to populations and regions where it is otherwise impractical.

Journal of Shanghai Jiao Tong University (Science) (CN 31-1943/U, ISSN1007-1172), indexed in EI, Scopus, etc., sponsored by the Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China, and directed by Shanghai Jiao Tong University, is a strictly peer-reviewed, academic journal. It focuses on interdisciplinary research in medicine-engineering, which is the intersection, fusion, and penetration of modern medicine and engineering that is the latest development of different disciplines. This year, it plans to publish a Special Issue devoted to Biomedical Device Design and Medical Image Processing (BDD&MIP). The goal of this special issue is (i) to provide a broad perspective of biomedical devices and medical images; (ii) to promote cross-disciplinary collaboration in this emerging research field; and (iii) to report the state-of-art development of these devices and algorithm with translational potential into the clinics. This special Issue broadens the understanding for members in the community of biomedical devices, provides detailed insight for system and algorithm implementation, and enables technology translation from biomedical engineering to life sciences.

Journal of Shanghai Jiao Tong University (Science) publishes original research papers and review articles describing original biomedical devices and applications of algorithms for processing medical images which are solicited for this Special issue, covering a range of biomedical device design and medical image processing, including but not limited to:

  1. Research Related to Computer-Aided Diagnostics and Quantitative Image Analysis such as the Application of Computer Vision and Machine Learning for Diagnostic Decision Support
  2. Advancements in the Application of Image Processing and Deep Learning Within Imaging Including Detector Design, Optical Path Design, 3D Reconstruction, and Artificial Intelligence
  3. Image Reconstruction Algorithms for CT, MRI, OCT and Microscopy
  4. Bio-Nano-Micro Systems in Biomedical and Clinical Applications
