Recent years have seen a rising interest in quantitative image analysis using techniques such as texture analysis. This has led to the introduction of the term radiomics, which has come to define large radiological image-derived feature sets, primed for exploration and analysis with data mining or machine learning approaches. The field of radiomics represents a great opportunity to extract additional value and information from medical imaging, beyond what physicians are used to assessing qualitatively or with current quantitative analyses. On the other hand, there is great uncertainty about the actual clinical value of information derived from radiomic features as questions are raised on their reproducibility and interpretability in biological terms. To allow for real-world applications of radiomic data, high-quality investigations both on the extraction process and data interpretation are still required. Out of large radiomic datasets, robust features must be identified, and their clinical value must be demonstrated.
This Special Issue will present and highlight high-quality studies focused on texture analysis and radiomics across a variety of imaging modalities and pathologies, to provide a valuable contribution to this field and aid its further progress towards clinical applicability.

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 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.
