Special Issue "Deep Learning for Medical Images: Challenges and Solutions"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 August 2020.
Interests: deep learning; image/video signal processing
Recently, with the great success of artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning (DL) in areas of natural images, adapting and further developing DL techniques to medical images is an important and relevant research challenge. These developments have a huge potential for medical imaging technology, medical data analysis, medical diagnostics, and healthcare in general. Medical images achieved by modalities including X-rays, magnetic resonance, microwaves, ultrasound, and optical methods have been used widely for clinical purposes. It is almost impossible for clinicians to diagnose diseases without the aid of medical images. However, interpreting these images manually is time-consuming, expensive, and varies depending on the clinician’s expertise. Advances in DL enable us to automatically extract more information from images more confidently than ever before. The techniques of AI and DL have played an important role in medical fields like medical image processing, computer-aided diagnosis, image interpretation, image fusion, image registration, image segmentation, etc.
This Special Issue calls for papers presenting novel works about medical image/video processing using DL and AI. Furthermore, high-quality review and survey papers are welcomed. The papers considered for possible publication may focus on, but not necessarily be limited to, the following areas:
- Deep learning and artificial intelligence for medical image/video;
- Image segmentation, registration, and fusion;
- Image processing and analysis;
- Image formation/reconstruction and image quality assessment;
- Medical image analysis;
- Computer aided diagnosis;
- Machine learning of big data in imaging;
- Integration of imaging with non-imaging biomarkers;
- Visualization in medical imaging.

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. Electronics 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 1500 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.
