Scope of the journal

The journal will cover technical and clinical studies related to health, ethical and social issues in field of diagnostic radiology and imaging science. Articles with clinical interest and implications will be given preference.

The mission of this journal is to publish, promote, educate, and spread the knowledge of imaging sciences in a manner that enables radiologists to clearly comprehend concepts and practices and encourage further research and technical innovations.

Journal of Clinical Imaging Science is a platform for practicing radiologists, researchers, and students to share, learn, and gain in-depth understanding of the concepts and practices of clinical imaging and technology. The journal aims to make available cutting edge technical and clinical knowledge to radiologists worldwide leading to optimal healthcare for all. It intends to maintain the highest standard of professionalism to ensure advancement of imaging science to the next level.

It is a multidisciplinary journal that covers all clinical and diagnostic aspects of breast imaging, cardiopulmonary imaging, efficacy, education and administration, general and emergency radiology, gastrointestinal imaging, genitourinary and gynecologic imaging, musculoskeletal imaging, neuroradiology/head and neck Imaging, nuclear medicine, pediatric imaging, vascular and interventional radiology, and ultrasound. This multidisciplinary approach allows readers to keep abreast of the trends not only in their areas but also in related fields.

The journal publishes original research papers, papers on technical innovations, review articles, radiologic-pathologic correlation studies, pictorial essays, case reports, and letters to editors. The journal allows free access to its articles.

Many journals consider case reports to have a low impact factor. We feel case reports are the basic building blocks of medical knowledge in imaging science. We strongly encourage authors to send case reports for publication in our journal. We believe case reports stimulate the reader’s thought processes and encourage them to think along novel and varied paths. This in turn results in generation of new research ideas and is very important in promoting scientific investigation and exploration.
