Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The prevalence of diabetes complications is a significant public health problem with a considerable economic cost. Over the past few years, the prevalence of diabetes has reached alarmingly high levels. The number of patients diagnosed with this disease already amounts to approximately half a billion worldwide, and this number will only grow in the near future, according to forecasts. Thus, the timely diagnosis of complications and the prevention of their development will contribute to increasing the length and quality of patients lives, as well as reducing the economic costs of their treatments.

Light-based technologies present unique opportunities for the diagnosis of various pathological disorders of biological tissues. Various spectroscopy and imaging technologies can provide information on their optical properties, which are directly related to its blood supply, degree of oxygenation, and the morphological changes.

This Special Issue will highlight the advantages and unique aspects of the use of optical diagnostic methods in identifying and evaluating complications of diabetes. Articles may focus on the application of technology, disease, or other aspects of the use of spectroscopy and imaging in clinical practice. Articles should reflect novel innovative research and emerging ideas.

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. Diagnostics 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 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.
