Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As imaging is the only technique that can quantify the brain’s structure and function in living humans at the system level, the analysis of brain imaging data is uniquely placed to facilitate brain disease diagnosis, as well as treatment planning and follow-ups. Rapid advances in non-invasive neuroimaging methods have increased the possibilities for the use of imaging tools in the clinic and in the development of treatments. These advances can largely be attributed to the development of dedicated computational algorithms, which are used to extract quantitative information from images, aid in the diagnosis of various brain diseases, and make imaging-based predictions at the level of the individual.

This Special Issue of the Journal of Imaging aims to feature reports on recent advances in brain image computation that specifically aim to improve diagnoses and treatment. One particular area of focus is that of imaging-based personalized medicine, whereby novel computational methods can facilitate diagnostics and treatment planning.

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. Journal of Imaging 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.
