In the last two decades, head and neck cancer treatment has undergone a remarkable rate of imaging and software-based technological innovation. Imaging modalities, such as computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and positron emission tomography, are, in general, the first step for cancer diagnosis and subsequent treatment decisions. An automatic generation and processing of these image datasets can aid clinicians in all therapy stages, from the data acquisition to a postinterventional follow-up monitoring and cancer prognosis. In this regard, this Special Issue targets the whole pipeline from image acquisition and medical image analysis up to epidemiology and demography studies in the field of head and neck cancer. Authors are invited to submit works in this field regarding imaging and medical image processing, such as segmentation, registration, deep learning, generative adversarial networks, radiomics, and image-guided therapies, but also regarding big data and clinical practice.

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. Cancers 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 2200 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.
