Diagnostic Imaging Articles

JDIT also covers fundamental and translational research focusing on medical imaging for advancements in early detection, diagnostics, and therapy of the disease state.  The general scope of JDIT includes imaging physics, tomographic reconstruction and algorithms such as those used in advanced computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging.  Also, the application of Image processing using artificial intelligence systems.  Further extensions to the imaging platform include forms of computer-aided diagnosis and quantitative image analysis.

Future of Diagnostic Imaging

Future developments in the visualisation and modelling of diagnostic imaging will result in early detection of the disease state and contribute to the patient’s treatment plan.  This personalised approach will encompass PACS (picture archiving and communication system) image storage and transfer using DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) systems.  These systems combine with emerging web technologies to deliver PACS throughout the world to provide access to medical images, interpretations and other related data.  In the future, other technological advances will be in ultrasound imaging, image-guided procedures, extending to digital pathology and applications towards biomedical imaging.

JDIT Articles

JDIT articles cover all medical imaging devices used in diagnosis, systems and applications of information technology solutions:  these allow the workflow to be optimised within hospitals and healthcare institutions contributing to a personalised treatment plan for each patient. The journal also aims to promote clinical papers and case studies as well as equipment reviews that will be of interest to the medical imaging community. The Journal of Diagnostic Imaging in Therapy provides a platform for education and on-going development of medical imaging sciences by publishing regular JDIT articles. All articles are open access and peer-reviewed by the Editorial Board.
