Introduction of Special Issue on Medical Imaging Modeling

The Special Issue on Medical Imaging Modeling consists of 10 articles, covering a wide spectrum of medical imaging modalities, e.g. CT, PET, MRI and optics, and various algorithms for reconstructing the images of the modalities or analyzing the reconstructed images for a specific or desirable task. Each article addresses a complicated problem by a way of sorting the abstractive or key points for a numerically tractable or computer simulative solution, i.e. modeling, with a pilot experiment to show the feasibility of the solution to accomplish the specific task.
