 Medical Image Analysis (MIA) is seeking original and unpublished
manuscripts for a special issue on Image Analysis in Dermatology:

Medical image analysis has a long and distinguished history spanning nearly
six decades. As a matter of fact, the evolution of the general field of
image analysis largely parallels that of medical image analysis as some of
the earliest image analysis techniques were developed in the context of
medical applications. Image analysis in general, and medical image analysis
in particular, have historically focused on single-channel (monochromatic)
images. A notable exception is dermatology, a subfield of medicine where
images are typically acquired in color. While color provides enhanced
visualization of surface and subsurface structures of the skin, it also
presents new challenges for researchers and practitioners as the numerous
methods developed for single-channel images are generally inapplicable to
multichannel images. In addition, there are remarkable visual similarities
among skin diseases, and compared to other medical imaging domains, varying
genetics, disease states, imaging equipment, and imaging conditions can
significantly alter the appearance of the skin, making automated analysis
in this domain highly challenging. This MIA special issue aims to collect
state-of-the-art research findings in the field of dermatological image
analysis. We are interested in contributions involving a wide a variety of
modalities including, but not limited to, clinical photography, dermoscopy,
total-body photography, ultrasonography, computed tomography, positron
emission tomography, optical coherence tomography, confocal microscopy,
infrared imaging, thermal imaging, multispectral imaging, and hyperspectral

This special issue aims to cover all aspects of dermatological image
analysis. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

+ Enhancement
+ Registration
+ Segmentation
+ Feature Extraction
+ Content-Based Retrieval
+ Synthetic Image Generation
+ Classification
+ Visualization

Paper Submission
Please ensure that you read the Guide for Authors before writing your
manuscript. The Guide for Authors and manuscript submission link are
available on MIA’s homepage (

When submitting your manuscript, please select the article type “VSI: Img
Anal Derm”. Please submit your manuscript latest by March 1, 2021.

Manuscripts submitted to this special issue must be unpublished and may not
be under consideration elsewhere. All submissions deemed suitable to be
sent for peer review will be reviewed by at least two independent
reviewers. Once your manuscript is accepted, it will go into production,
and will be simultaneously published in the current regular issue and
pulled into the online special issue. Articles from this special issue will
appear in different regular issues of the journal, though they will be
clearly marked and branded as special issue articles.
