Special Issue Call for Papers - “Multimedia Systems and Applications in Biomedicine”

Aims and Scope

Computer Methods in Biomechanics and Biomedical Engineering: Imaging & Visualization ( invites submissions to the Special Issue on “Multimedia Systems and Applications in Biomedicine”.

Advances in computing techniques, data acquisition technology, hardware, and networks have mutually promoted the development of multimedia analysis approaches. Many machine learning, signal/image processing, and data mining algorithms have been successfully developed for multimedia analysis. WIthin the multimedia domain, medical data analysis has attracted considerable attention due in part to the increase of imaging modalities.

Consider the assessment of the functioning of the heart. Physicians have multiple resources and modalities available, including: auscultation which can produce a report in text format; electrocardiograms which result in time series, x-rays saved as images; volumes provided through angiography; temporal information given by echocardiograms, and 4D information extracted through flow MRI.

Since gathering medical data is now easier than ever before, existing multimedia learning methods are expected to embrace new challenges to deal with large-scale medical data that may share totally different data distributions or may continuously change over time.

This special issue will serve as a way to set the state of the art in the advances in multimedia learning methods for various medical applications.
