IJCARS is a peer-reviewed journal to provide a platform closing the gap between medical and technical disciplines and to encourage interdisciplinary research and development activities in an international environment.
The focus of the journal is on R&D areas relating to digital imaging methods and computer-assisted diagnostic and therapeutic workflows that match and enhance the skill levels of health care professionals.
IJCARS invites submissions on topics in information sciences, ICT, and mechatronic systems design as well as clinical application fields such as:Medical imaging, e.g. CT, MR, US, SPECT, PET, DR, molecular imaging, and virtual endoscopy
Image processing and display; 3D, 4D, and 5D imaging; Hospital-wide PACS and telemedicine; Computer applications for e.g. neurosurgery, head and neck, orthopaedics, ear nose and throat, cardiovascular and thoracoabdominal surgery, and plastic/reconstructive surgery; Image-guided therapy; Surgical robotics and instrumentation; Surgical navigation; 3D modeling and rapid prototyping; Postoperative result assessment; Surgical education and training; Haptics and multimodal devices in medical applications; Methods of validation and verification; CAD for breast, prostate, chest, colon, skeletal, liver, brain, and vascular imaging; Cranial and maxillofacial image-guided surgery; Surgical workflow; Surgical DICOM and IHE; Digital operating room.
