Biomedical imaging has been an essential tool in daily medical diagnostics. For more than 100 years, various biomedical imaging technologies have been developed to provide anatomical, functional and molecular information of internal organs, among which optical imaging and ultrasound imaging have been two major modalities. Being distinct in fundamental physics, optical imaging and ultrasound imaging have been explored by different research communities. In recent decades, the emergence of photoacoustic imaging (PAI) modality has opened the way for integrating optical and ultrasound merits, i.e., rich optical contrast and deep ultrasound resolution. PAI has experienced an exponential increase in both research and industrial communities. These achievements include but are not limited to: PA microscopy, PA tomography, PA endoscopy, PA intravascular probe, contrast-enhanced PAI, and related physics, system and algorithm designs.
The special issue of the journal Applied Sciences “Biomedical Photoacoustic and Thermoacoustic Imaging” aims to cover recent advances in the development of photoacoustic imaging, thermoacoustic imaging, optical imaging, acoustic imaging, and related imaging techniques that bridge the merits of optics/microwave and acoustics.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com 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 papers will be 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. 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.
