Artificial intelligence (AI) is the ability of computers to accomplish tasks that are normally completed by intelligent beings such as humans and animals. Among current AI applications, machine learning (ML) is a tool that combines computer science with statistics for generating advanced algorithms capable of identifying the complex relationships within large datasets. At present, ML is being applied in numerous fields of modern society, including web searching, social media networking, and facial recognition. In medicine, ML has shown impressive diagnostic skills through imaging analysis with potential applicability in radiology, pathology, and dermatology. For example, in a recent study, ML algorithms performed better than experienced dermatologists at detecting skin cancer. Similarly, the C-Path tool, an automated pathologist algorithm that used unsupervised ML and automated image processing to identify thousands of novel imaging features successfully identified high-risk breast cancers. In addition, based on chest X-ray images, deep learning algorithms showed remarkable precision and accuracy in the diagnosis of tuberculosis. These examples provide proof of concept for ML use in medicine. However, the feasibility of this approach in everyday clinical practice is unknown and requires further validation. Nevertheless, with the new advancements in computer processing power and the exponential growth of digital health data, there is growing enthusiasm for the potential utilization of ML in clinical medicine. This Special Issue will highlight recent advances in the diverse utilization of AI tools in clinical medicine. We welcome the submission of original research articles encompassing both preclinical and clinical studies, as well as review and opinion articles that include, but are not limited to, the following aspects: (1) artificial intelligence in medical practice; (2) artificial intelligence in medicine ethical considerations; (3) diagnostic applications of artificial intelligence; (4) predicting infection complications with artificial intelligence; (5) cancer and artificial intelligence; (6) predicting patients’ survival with artificial intelligence; and (7) artificial intelligence for interpreting radiographic images: friend or foe?

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. Journal of Clinical Medicine 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 1800 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.
