New: Journal of Medical Imaging

A new journal from SPIE, the Journal of Medical Imaging, will launch in 2014 to cover fundamental and translational research and applications focused on photonics in medical imaging.

The new journal “gives the field of medical imaging, which continues to be more and more interdisciplinary, a home for scientific presentation, discussion, review, and archiving,” says Maryellen L. Giger, professor of radiology at University of Chicago, who has been appointed editor-in-chief.

The scope of the Journal of Medical Imaging (JMI) will initially match that of the annual SPIE Medical Imaging symposium. Topics will include imaging physics, tomographic reconstruction algorithms (such as those in CT and MRI), image processing, computer-aided diagnosis, visualization and modeling, image perception and observer performance, technology assessment, ultrasonic imaging, image-guided procedures, and digital pathology.

All authors, whether or not SPIE Medical Imaging attendees, are invited to submit articles."The medical imaging community has a long association with SPIE through the annual symposium the Society has hosted for more than 40 years," noted SPIE President William Arnold.

"Applications of these technologies have helped save lives through better diagnosis and less invasive treatments, and the field keeps expanding to meet more needs," he said. "Supporting the community with a home journal is a significant step forward."

SPIE Publications Director Eric Pepper said the Society was "delighted to be able to respond to the needs expressed by the medical imaging community," especially authors who participate in SPIE Medical Imaging.

"The new journal will provide them a rigorous, peer-reviewed option for their work and help maintain and foster the already well-established connections within the community," Pepper said.

JMI will be published in print and online in the SPIE Digital Library, with the online version freely available in the first year.
