Translational Imaging

Section edited by Ravinder Reddy and Mohammed Haris

The Translational Imaging section provides a platform for rapid dissemination of the advances in medical imaging research emphasizing clinical translation. The topics covered in this section will include methodological innovations in early diagnoses of human diseases and monitoring of therapeutic responses from all the major imaging modalities (MRI, PET, US etc.,). Articles considered for publication include studies in human subjects, pre-clinical models and ex vivo systems dealing with imaging of human pathophysiologies.
