Special Issue Information
Since its invention in 1991, optical coherence tomography (OCT) has rapidly become one of the most important clinical tools in the field of ophthalmology. In recent years, applications of this inherently non-invasive and label-free three-dimensional imaging technique have extended far beyond retinal and corneal imaging. OCT applications are being increasingly used in medicine in fields including dermatology, endoscopy and neurology, and advances in system technology and image processing mean that the resultant images are approaching cellular resolution over a wide field of view. Through the constant development of new technologies and functional extensions, OCT continues to move into new areas of biomedical application.
This Special Issue will focus on the most recent advances in biomedical applications of optical coherence tomography. The addressed topics include, but are not limited to:
- Optical coherence tomography;
- Optical coherence microscopy;
- Optical coherence angiography;
- Dynamic OCT;
- Doppler OCT;
- Polarization-sensitive OCT;
- Spectroscopic OCT;
- Optical coherence elastography;
- OCT and artificial intelligence;
- OCT for basic research (ex vivo, in vitro or in vivo models);
- OCT for clinical studies in the field of biomedical research.
Original research contributions will be prioritized, but critical reviews about the state of the art, current limitations and future perspectives are also welcome.

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 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. Bioengineering is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
