**Aims and Scope**
Biomedical sensing and imaging technologies are not only significant for the early detection, rapid diagnosis, and precise treatment of diseases, but they also align with key societal values and offer numerous benefits to societies worldwide. These technologies encompass a range of techniques and devices that enable the non-invasive monitoring, diagnosis, and treatment of various medical conditions. The significance and benefits of these technologies are clearly demonstrated via their capacity to enhance patient outcomes, improve quality of life, and foster equitable access to healthcare.
Specifically, wearable/smart biosensors and devices are critical in healthcare and play a pivotal role in facilitating medical Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications. They provide continuous monitoring, accurate data, patient empowerment, and enable remote healthcare. By facilitating the collection of high-quality data, they serve as a foundation for medical AI applications, leading to improved diagnostics, personalized interventions, and enhanced healthcare outcomes. Biosensors drive the shift towards data-driven, proactive, and patient-centric healthcare.
In this Special Issue, we welcome the submission of papers that explore the various aspects of health monitoring by introducing novel imaging and/or sensing methods with pre-clinical/clinical applications.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
