BELLINGHAM, Washington, USA (PRWEB) September 12, 2013
In early 2014, SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, will launch the Journal of Medical Imaging (JMI), covering fundamental and translational research and applications focused on photonics in medical imaging.
The scope of JMI initially will mirror that of the annual SPIE Medical Imaging symposium. Topics will include imaging physics, tomographic reconstruction algorithms (such as those in CT and MRI), image processing, computer-aided diagnosis, visualization and modeling, image perception and observer performance, technology assessment, ultrasonic imaging, image-guided procedures and digital pathology.
“The new journal gives the field of medical imaging, which continues to be more and more interdisciplinary, a home for scientific presentation, discussion, review and archiving,” said Dr. Maryellen Giger, A.N. Pritzker Professor of Radiology/Medical Physics at the University of Chicago, who has been appointed editor-in-chief.
Authors are invited to submit articles beginning 1 October 2013, with publication to begin in early 2014. More information is at http://www.spie.org/JMI.
JMI will be published in print quarterly and online in the SPIE Digital Library as each peer-reviewed article is approved for publication, with the online version freely available to all readers in the first year.
“The medical imaging community has a long association with SPIE through the annual symposium the Society has hosted for more than 40 years,” noted SPIE President Bill Arnold. “Applicatio
