Various physiological signals generated from different organs of our body are electroencephalogram (EEG), electrocardiogram (ECG), heart rate variability (HRV), magnetoencephalogram (MEG), electromyogram (EMG), phonocardiogram (PCG), blood pressure, blood glucose, speech, photoplethysmogram (PPG), respiration, etc. These bio-signals carry vital information about the health of corresponding organs. Similarly, any ailment in our organs can be visualized by using different modality images, such as X-ray, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computerized tomography (CT), Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), Positron emission tomography (PET), fundus and ultrasound images, etc., belonging to various body parts to obtain useful information. This demands advanced signal processing techniques to unearth the hidden information present in these signals, which are difficult to observe through the naked eye.
Application of such novel signal processing methods to the physiological signals and medical images will aid clinicians in the accurate fast diagnosis and help to improve patient quality of life. Thus, this Special Issue, entitled “Application of Signal Processing Methods for Systematic Analysis of Physiological Health”, focuses on new techniques that can be used to improve disease diagnosis and wellness.

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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2000 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.
