Advanced Biomedical imaging: Globalize Your Research
Biomedical imaging is the technique and process of creating visual representations of a body's interior for clinical analysis and medical intervention, and visual representation of the function of certain organs or tissues (physiology). Medical imaging aims to reveal internal structures that are hidden by the skin and bones, and to diagnose and treat disease. Medical imaging also establishes a database of normal anatomy and physiology so that anomalies can be identified. While imaging of removed organs and tissues can be performed for medical reasons, such procedures are usually considered as part of pathology rather than medical imaging.
Biomedical imaging involves the complex chain of acquiring, processing, and visualizing structural or functional images of living objects or systems, including extraction and processing of image-related information. As a discipline and in its broadest sense, it is part of biological imaging and incorporates radiology, which uses X-ray imaging, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound, endoscopy, elastography, tactile imaging, thermography, medical photography, and nuclear medicine functional imaging techniques such as positron emission tomography (PET) and single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). Biomedical imaging refers to several different technologies that are used to view the human body in order to diagnose, monitor, or treat medical conditions. MIPPA describes specific techniques for diagnostic imaging, such as diagnostic MRI, CT and nuclear medicine imaging such as positron emission tomography (PET). The criteria for accreditation refer only to the scientific aspect of diagnostic imaging and not to interpretation by a physician.
Advanced Diagnostic Imaging:
Advanced diagnostic imaging can be of benefit to patients when used correctly-it identifies diseases and conditions early and helps healthcare professionals to guide patients to the treatment they need. But when used inappropriately, advanced diagnostic imaging provides minimal clinical benefits for practitioners and patients, wastes scarce health care resources and may even jeopardize patient safety. Advanced diagnostic imaging, defined for the purposes of this report to include diagnostic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), and nuclear medicine imaging, such as positron emission tomography (PET), has attracted many new providers as a profitable service with growing demand and low entry barriers. The volume of diagnostic medical imaging services prescribed by practitioners, including non-radiologists, has seen a dramatic proliferation, raising concerns about patient safety, costs and implications for the healthcare industry.
Journal of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering is a prestigious open, peer-reviewed journal; exploring novel discoveries to be recognized and ideally disseminated to the broader scientific community. We encourage submissions & exchange of views in the form of Original researches, Review Articles, Clinical Cases, Perspective, Commentaries, and Letters to the editor by addressing various aspects of medical diagnosis, Diagnostic imaging, and Quality analytic interpretation of diagnoses.
