Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, there has been a considerable development of sensors for three-dimensional acquisition in the biomedical field with the aim of both reducing the electromagnetic radiation to which the patient is subjected and improving their resolution and accuracy. This is opening up new scenarios for diagnostics, treatment planning, and follow-up procedures and studies. Obviously, each sensor providing information with different accuracy and resolution requires specific algorithms for quantitative data extraction. Regardless, the need to process raw data still represents a limitation in exploiting the potential of three-dimensional digitization of parts of the human body. To date, in fact, despite the availability of three-dimensional virtual models, in most cases, traditional manual protocols are used. The development of methods for automatic digital data processing is of uttermost importance, and various research groups are currently working on the subject. Moreover, the availability of these types of data could increase the potentialities of diagnosis and treatment planning tools, offering the possibility of analyzing quantities that cannot be investigated using traditional methods.

This Special Issue of Sensors, entitled “3D Sensing and Imaging for Bioengineering Investigations”, will focus on all innovative aspects of research and development related to this field. Original research papers focusing on the development and experimental verification of computer-based sensing and imaging algorithms for biomedical fields are welcome.

We invite authors to contribute reviews and original research articles that will illustrate and stimulate ongoing research in this field of biomedical engineering. Reviews should provide an up-to-date overview of the current state of the art in a particular application and include key findings from different research groups.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2400 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.
