Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Medical ultrasound has witnessed dramatic progress during the last two decades thanks to advances in hardware, software, and applications. These have resulted in significant image quality improvement, emergence of new imaging modalities, novel automatic image analysis and diagnosis tools and more. At the core of these improvements are computational methods that enable better image reconstructions or allow real-time parallel computing for the formation of new modalities that include but are not limited to: ultrafast plane wave imaging, shear wave elastography, vector flow imaging, 3D and 4D imaging, ultrasensitive microflow imaging, super resolution ultrasound localization microscopy, model-based and deep-learning-based image restoration, artifact removal, automatic segmentation, and classification. These advances allow quantitative and objective imaging for better management of diseases and health conditions.

This Special Issue will create a unified platform to cover this diverse range of new methods and applications in medical ultrasound driven by advanced computational methods.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Acoustics is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
