Special Issue Information

Recording information from the human body by measuring signals and taking images is important throughout the entire clinical process covering anamnesis, diagnosis, therapy, and treatment. In addition to proper recording, preprocessing and pre-analyzing signals and information from the patient fusion of quantitative data and qualitative information also play an important role. The field of biomedical imaging and signal processing has been and still is open to new developments in other disciplines and fields such as physics and chemistry, independent of how remote these may first appear—this is highlighted in the example of Kinect and another kind of devices originally developed for gaming rather than imaging.

This issue puts the focus on recent developments in the fields of biomedical, medical, and clinical image and signal processing. These include new sensing methods, approaches to analyzing the recorded images and signals, data fusion methods, and algorithms to obtain new and additional insights, and how they help to improve clinical processes and free clinicians and doctors to spend more time in direct contact with their patients rather than interpreting the recorded data and signals.

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 2200 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.
