Special Issue on: "The Methodologies and Applications of Modelling, Identification, and Computing in Medical Imaging"

Guest Editors:
Dr Julian Liu, Oxford University, UK and Professor Yicheng Ni, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium

Modern medical imaging relies on extensive modelling methodologies to develop novel technologies, improve modality accuracy and explore versatile applications. This special issue will focus on the methodology development, implementation, and applications of modelling, identification, and computing in medical imaging such as MRI, X-ray CT, PET, and ultrasound, etc. The peer-reviewed scientific reports in this collection will cover a variety of cross-disciplinary topics ranging from image processing and analysis to animal models of human pathologies relevant to biomedical imaging research.

Subject Coverage
Special attention will be given to a number of relevant topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • Simulation tools and modelling
  • Image reconstructions
  • Image quality improvement
  • Computational efficiency improvement
  • Partial volume identification and correction
  • Model-based analysis
  • Image description
  • Processing of dynamic data
  • 3D/4D imaging
  • Image registration
  • Image segmentation
  • Noise identification and filtering
  • Computer aid diagnosis (CAD)
  • Clinical applications of imaging
  • Development and/or optimisation of animal models of human pathologies for biomedical imaging research
