Special issue on 3D medical image processing and analysis

Published 24 November, 2022

Medical images show different characteristics in accordance with the target organs and suspected abnormalities. The general 3D modalities used for medical imaging include Computed Tomography (CT), Positron Emission Tomography (PET), and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Recently, we have witnessed a rapid increase in the use of deep learning models to process and analyze 3D medical imaging data. This is due to the great improvement in the efficiency and effectiveness of 3D Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) as compared to traditional hand-crafted methods.

This special issue will focus on state-of-the-art 3D techniques and their applications in medical image processing and analysis in healthcare. It will also explore developments that benefit the training of neural networks and effectively leverage different information sources in healthcare. In addition, it will aim to inspire the interpretability and ethics of AI, since they are the foundations of medical safety.
