Welcome Note

Journal of Medical Imaging and Case Reports (MICR) is dedicated to clinical and medical research intrinsic to all imaging modalities, including optical, ultrasound, magnetic resonance, x-ray computed tomography, nuclear imaging for diagnostic and treatment purposes.

With increasing diagnostic capabilities of medical imaging techniques, the number of imaging-based procedures is increasing globally. Effective, safe, and high quality imaging is important for medical decision-making and can reduce unnecessary procedures. Through publication of rigorously peer-reviewed scholarly communications, MICR will become a world-class scientific journal and an invaluable resource for researchers, clinicians, healthcare professionals across different therapeutic and research areas.

In view of the rapid advances in medical imaging research, we promise short turnaround time for peer-review process. A manuscript will receive initial review comments and editorial decision within few weeks. Our goal is to publish accepted manuscripts within 6-8 weeks of initial submission.
