International Journal of Biomedical Imaging

About this Journal

Aims and scope

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 of 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 is to promote research and development of biomedical imaging by publishing high-quality research articles and reviews in this rapidly growing interdisciplinary field.

International Journal of Biomedical Imaging is operated by a board of editors consisting of internationally known active researchers. The journal is made available online for free and can also be purchased in print. It utilizes a web-based review process for speedy turnaround up to high standards. In addition to regular issues, special issues will be organized by guest editors. Subject areas include (but are not limited to):

  • Digital radiography and 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
  • Neutron imaging for biomedical applications
  • Magnetic and optical spectroscopy, and optical biopsy
  • Optical, electron, scanning tunneling/atomic force microscopy
