Journal of Biomedical Optics

Title Abbreviation
J Biomed Opt
Electronic ISSN
Biomedical Researchers, Ophthalmologists, Researchers, Scientists, Ultrasound Medicine Specialists
The Journal of Biomedical Optics (JBO) publishes peer-reviewed papers on the use of novel optical systems and techniques for improved health care and biomedical research. Growth in the capabilities of biomedical optical technology has fueled new areas of contrast, resolution, and spectral capacity, which have enabled widespread applications throughout biology and medicine. Topics suitable for JBO include significant advances and in-depth studies of: Optical devices, systems, and procedures developed for surgery, cancer, cardiology, pharmacology, physiology, ophthalmology, immunology, pathology, genetics, clinical medicine, and public health; Advances for inherent optical therapies and interventions, including photodynamic therapy, photodiagnosis, photobiomodulation, surgical guidance, drug imaging/activation, photoimmune therapy, and optical-radiation interactions; Translational medical optics intended for use in human studies or clinical practice; Tissue-optical interactions, theoretical modeling, image and signal processing, and image reconstruction; Biomedical spectroscopy, microscopy systems, and imaging and photonic systems; Nanophotonics, optical reporters, plasmonics, and biosensors; Hybrid imaging or interventional systems with optics and ultrasound, x-rays, MRI, and electromagnetics.
