Special Issue on Impact of Advanced Parallel Computing / Cloud Computing Technologies for Image Guided Diagnosis and Therapy


Now also available online: volumes 1 – 7 (1989 – 1997)

The Journal of X-Ray Science and Technology is an international journal designed for the diverse community (biomedical, industrial and academic) of users and developers of novel x-ray imaging techniques. The purpose of the journal is to provide clear and full coverage of new developments and applications in the field. Areas such as x-ray microlithography, x-ray astronomy and medical x-ray imaging as well as new technologies arising from fields traditionally considered unrelated to x rays (semiconductor processing, accelerator technology, ionizing and non-ionizing medical diagnostic and therapeutic modalities, etc.) present opportunities for research that can meet new challenges as they arise. Research areas within the scope of the journal include:

  • Interaction of x-rays with matter: x-ray phenomena, biological effects of radiation, radiation safety and optical constants
  • X-ray sources: x-rays from synchrotrons, x-ray lasers, plasmas, and other sources, conventional or unconventional
  • Optical elements: grazing incidence optics, multilayer mirrors, zone plates, gratings, other diffraction optics
  • Optical instruments: interferometers, spectrometers, microscopes, telescopes, microprobes
  • Detectors: CCD arrays, position-sensitive detectors, flat panel detectors and display devices, scintillators
  • Medical Imaging Modalities: Analog and digital radiography, X-ray computed tomography, radionuclide imaging, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound, optical and other medical imaging modalities
  • X-ray imaging techniques and signal processing: coded imaging, tomography, holography, medical image processing and computer aided diagnosis (CAD)
  • Applications: analytical, nondestructive testing, microelectronics, biological/medical diagnosis and treatment, x-ray astronomy, materials and surface science

    It is possible to have figures printed in colour, provided the cost of their reproduction is paid for by the author. See Preparation of Manuscripts for the required file formats.

    Cover Letter
    Please include in the cover letter a statement that the manuscript has not been published before and is not being considered for publication in another journal. Authors are requested to suggest 5-6 potential reviewers for their manuscript. Please provide names, titles, affiliations, addresses and emails of the suggested reviewers.

    PREPARATION OF MANUSCRIPTS

    Organization of the paper and style of presentation

    Manuscripts must be written in English. Authors whose native language is not English are advised to seek the advice of a native English speaker, before submitting their manuscripts.

    Peerwith offers a language and copyediting service to all scientists who want to publish their manuscript in scientific peer-reviewed periodicals and books.

    Manuscripts should be prepared with wide margins and double spacing throughout, including the abstract, footnotes and references. Every page of the manuscript, including the title page, references, tables, etc., should be numbered. However, in the text no reference should be made to page numbers; if necessary, one may refer to sections. Try to avoid the excessive use of italics and bold face.

    Manuscripts should be organized in the following order:

  • Title page
  • Body of text (divided by subheadings)
  • Acknowledgements
  • References
  • Tables
  • Figure captions
  • Figures
  • Headings and subheadings should be numbered and typed on a separate line, without indentation.

    SI units should be used, i.e., the units based on the metre, kilogramme, second, etc.

    Title page
    The title page should provide the following information:

  • Title (should be clear, descriptive and not too long)
  • Name(s) of author(s); please indicate who is the corresponding author
  • Full affiliation(s)
  • Present address of author(s), if different from affiliation
  • Complete address of corresponding author, including tel. no., fax no. and e-mail address
  • Abstract
  • Keywords
  • Abstract
    The abstract should be clear, descriptive, self-explanatory and not longer than 200 words, it should also be suitable for publication in abstracting services.
    The abstract for research papers should follow the “structured abstract” format. Section labels should be in bold uppercase letters followed by a colon, and each section will begin on a new line.
    BACKGROUND:
    OBJECTIVE:
    METHODS:
    RESULTS:
    CONCLUSIONS:

    Tables
    Number as Table 1, Table 2 etc, and refer to all of them in the text.

    Each table should be provided on a separate page of the manuscript. Tables should not be included in the text.

    Each table should have a brief and self-explanatory title.

    Column headings should be brief, but sufficiently explanatory. Standard abbreviations of units of measurement should be added between parentheses.

    Vertical lines should not be used to separate columns. Leave some extra space between the columns instead.

    Any explanations essential to the understanding of the table should be given in footnotes at the bottom of the table.

    REFERENCES


    For citations in the text, numbers between square brackets should be used. All publications cited in the text should be presented in a list of references following the text of the manuscript.
    References should be listed alphabetically in the following style:
    [1] B. Newman and E.T. Liu, Perspective on BRCA1, Breast Disease 10 (1998), 3-10.
    [2] D.F. Pilkey, Happy conservation laws, in: Neural Stresses, J. Frost, ed., Controlled Press, Georgia, 1995, pp. 332-391.
    [3] E. Wilson, Active vibration analysis of thin-walled beams, Ph.D. Dissertation, University of Virginia, 1991.

    Footnotes
    Footnotes should only be used if absolutely essential. In most cases it is possible to incorporate the information in the text.

    If used, they should be numbered in the text, indicated by superscript numbers and kept as short as possible.

    Figures
    Number figures as Fig. 1, Fig. 2, etc and refer to all of them in the text.

    Each figure should be provided on a separate sheet. Figures should not be included in the text.

    Colour figures can be included, provided the cost of their reproduction is paid for by the author.

    For the file formats of the figures please take the following into account:

  • Line art should be have a minimum resolution of 600 dpi, save as EPS or TIFF
  • Grayscales (incl photos) should have a minimum resolution of 300 dpi (no lettering), or 500 dpi (when there is lettering); save as tiff
  • Do not save figures as JPEG, this format may lose information in the process
  • Do not use figures taken from the Internet, the resolution will be too low for printing
  • Do not use colour in your figures if they are to be printed in black & white, as this will reduce the print quality (note that in software often the default is colour, you should change the settings)
  • For figures that should be printed in colour, please send a CMYK encoded EPS or TIFF
  • Figures should be designed with the format of the page of the journal in mind. They should be of such a size as to allow a reduction of 50%.

    On maps and other figures where a scale is needed, use bar scales rather than numerical ones, i.e., do not use scales of the type 1:10,000. This avoids problems if the figures need to be reduced.

    Each figure should have a self-explanatory caption. The captions to all figures should be typed on a separate sheet of the manuscript.

    Photographs are only acceptable if they have good contrast and intensity.

    Journal of X-Ray Science and Technology Adds Embedded 3D Image Videos to Enhance Visualization of Medical Procedures

    21 Nov 2016 - The current issue of the Journal of X-Ray Science and Technology now features 3D imaging embedded within its articles for the first time. Use of this digital and multimedia technique enhances the value of five papers, which focus on kidney injuries, tumor diagnoses, and dental medicine. Videos of these rotating 3D images can be accessed directly, allowing readers to examine them in detail and gain deeper understanding of the diagnoses, prognoses, and treatments described....
