Forthcoming and Online First Articles

International Journal of Signal and Imaging Systems Engineering

International Journal of Signal and Imaging Systems Engineering (IJSISE)

Forthcoming articles have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication but are pending final changes, are not yet published and may not appear here in their final order of publication until they are assigned to issues. Therefore, the content conforms to our standards but the presentation (e.g. typesetting and proof-reading) is not necessarily up to the Inderscience standard. Additionally, titles, authors, abstracts and keywords may change before publication. Articles will not be published until the final proofs are validated by their authors.

Forthcoming articles must be purchased for the purposes of research, teaching and private study only. These articles can be cited using the expression "in press". For example: Smith, J. (in press). Article Title. Journal Title.

Online First articles are published online here, before they appear in a journal issue. Online First articles are fully citeable, complete with a DOI. They can be cited, read, and downloaded. Online First articles are published as Open Access (OA) articles to make the latest research available as early as possible.

Open AccessArticles marked with this Open Access icon are Online First articles. They are freely available and openly accessible to all without any restriction except the ones stated in their respective CC licenses.

  • Visualising the Arc-shaped Rib Bone Embedded in Wood Shavings: Advancing Toward Microwave Imaging Systems for Preclinical Orthopaedic Applications   Order a copy of this article
    by Ercan Mengüç, Selcuk Helhel 
    Abstract: Microwave illumination has no ionising radiation effects and high-power signal components. Unlike conventional devices, their usage for continuous screening in living tissues is not limited. Conventional devices have two problems. First, they use high-power ionized signals. Second, the deformation degree is calculated manually. Their usage is limited, and computed deformation degree depends on operator. During a scoliosis backbone should be scanned frequently to plan treatment. Proposed preclinical microwave imaging system (MIS) aims to address these main issues and is suitable for visualizing scoliosis. Imaging technique can reconstruct the microwave raw images using scattered waves. It uses only circular data analysis, not linear, and gives accurate, reliable, and fast results. Algorithm automatically calculates the deformation angle of the C-type bone. Position and deformation angle of the actual bone target are determined with an error rate of 2% and 3.5%, respectively, compared to the actual measurement.
    Keywords: low power RF systems; microwave measurement & imaging; signal processing; image construction; detection of deformation angle of the rib bone.
