Journal of Medical Imaging • Open AccessExciting Progress in the Growth of JMI
Welcome to the second issue of the SPIE Journal of Medical Imaging (JMI). As of this writing, we have received 146 submissions from 28 countries—from major institutions worldwide. I believe we are on track in accomplishing our goals for the journal as the manuscripts submitted thus far span the various fields of medical imaging. For example, this second issue includes excellent papers on image processing; computer-aided diagnosis; image-guided procedures, robotic interventions and modeling; image perception, observer performance, and technology; ultrasonic imaging and tomography; digital pathology; and biomedical applications in molecular, structural, and functional imaging. We also publish our first book review.
