Journal of Medical Imaging and Health Informatics (JMIHI)
Journal of Medical Imaging and Health Informatics (JMIHI) is a medium to disseminate novel experimental and theoretical research results in the field of biomedicine, biology, clinical, rehabilitation engineering, medical image processing, bio-computing, D2H2, and other health related areas. As an example, the Distributed Diagnosis and Home Healthcare (D2H2) is an outgrowth of miniaturization and integration of instrumentation (wearable and implanted) for measurement, computing, signal processing, communication, and healthcare informatics. This integrative systems approach will revolutionize the practice of medicine in the new century, enabling the delivery of healthcare to patients anywhere in the world by combining bio-sensing and information technologies with medical expertise. It will facilitate the transition from “central” and “hospital-based” medical diagnosis and healthcare delivery to “distributed” diagnosis and “home” healthcare. In other words, the existing medical systems are constantly being modified to fit particular circumstances and to solve specific problems such as home-based diagnosis and healthcare. The concept of D2H2 aims to improve the quality of patient care and patient wellness by transforming the delivery of healthcare from a central, hospital-based system to one that is more distributed and home-based. Different medical imaging modalities used for extraction of information from MRI, CT, Ultrasound, X-ray, Thermal, Molecular and fusion of its techniques will also be the focus of this journal. JMIHI publishes Original Research Articles, Reviews, Technical Notes and Rapid Communications.
