Advanced Optical Imaging for Biomedicine

Special Issue

The Science Partner Journal BME Frontiers is is now considering submissions for its first special issue, Advanced Optical Imaging for Biomedicine


Optical imaging provides a direct way to inspect biological and medical objects. Rapid developments of novel optical imaging technology and instruments can lead to significant breakthroughs in understanding fundamental biological phenomena and rapid diagnosis of diseases such as Optical Coherence Tomography, Photo-acoustic Imaging, Stimulated Resonance Raman Imaging, Multiphoton Microscopy, Super-Resolution Microscopy, and many others. Some technologies have been translated to biomedical applications, and some are on the doorstep. Joint efforts from both optical and biomedical communities are still needed to fully discover the potential of these optical modalities and promote them as routine laboratory and/or clinical apparatus.

This special issue calls for papers reporting on the latest progress of optical imaging for biomedicine in theory, instrumentation, and application. Original research papers and review articles are both welcome. Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Photoacoustic imaging
  • Resonance Raman imaging (CARS or SRS)
  • Optical coherent tomography (OCT) for clinic applications
  • Optical endoscopy
  • Optical imaging guided surgery
  • Optical microscopy for biology and pathology
  • Machine learning and deep learning in optical imaging

    Submission Deadline
