International Journal of Biomedical Imaging (IJBI)

Publisher: Hindawi Publishing Corporation

The last quarter century has witnessed major advancements that have
brought biomedical imaging to a paramount status in life sciences. As a
prominent example, the National Institute for Biomedical Imaging and
Bioengineering (NIBIB) was established in 2000 as the newest institute
in the National Institutes of Health (NIH), USA. Generally speaking, the
scope of biomedical imaging covers data acquisition, image
reconstruction, and image analysis, involving theories, methods, systems
and applications. While tomographic and post-processing techniques
become increasingly sophisticated, traditional and emerging modalities
play more and more critical roles in anatomical, functional, cellular
and molecular imaging.

The overall goal of the International Journal of Biomedical Imaging
(IJBI) is to promote research and development of biomedical imaging by
publishing high-quality papers, reviews and tutorials in this rapidly
growing interdisciplinary field.

IJBI is operated by a board of editors consisting of internationally
known active researchers, made available online for free and also in
print, utilizes a web-based review process for speedy turnaround up to
high standards. In addition to regular issues, special issues will be
organized by the invited guest editors. Proposals for special issues
should be submitted to the Editor-in-Chief.

Subject areas include, but are not limited to:

* Digital radiography, tomosynthesis
* X-ray computed tomography (CT)
* Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
* Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT)
* Positron Emission Tomography (PET)
* Ultrasound imaging
* Diffuse optical tomography, coherence, fluorescence,
bioluminescence tomography, impedance tomography
* Magnetic, optical spectroscopy, optical biopsy
* Optical, electron, scanning tunneling/atomic force microscopy
* Small animal imaging
* Functional, cellular and molecular imaging
* Imaging assays for screening and molecular analysis
* Micro-array image analysis and bioinformatics
* Emerging biomedical imaging techniques
* Imaging modality fusion
* Biomedical imaging instrumentation
* Biomedical image processing, pattern recognition and analysis
* Biomedical image visualization, compression, transmission, and
* Imaging and modeling related to systems biology and systems
* Applied mathematics, applied physics and chemistry related to
biomedical imaging
* High-performance, grid computing technology for biomedical imaging.
