Scope

The area of terahertz for biology and medicine has been developing rapidly in recent decades. The strong THz-wave sensitivity to the content and state of water in tissues has led to novel opportunities in such applications as label-free diagnosis of neoplasms, sensing of tissue hydration, viability and traumatic injuries, study of glycated tissues and blood, and even therapy for cancers and inflammatory diseases of the skin.

Inspired by this rapid progress, the Journal of Biomedical Optics will publish a special section to capture the most recent advances in THz technology and innovative THz instruments and methods in biology and medicine. The special section will cover the following fundamental and applied topics.

  • Research and engineering problems that restrain transfer of THz technology to clinical practice:

    • development of portable, ergonomic, low-cost optoelectronic elements and instruments for THz spectroscopy and imaging of tissues;
    • novel materials needed for THz optics and biophotonics;
    • creation of hard waveguides and flexible fibers for the THz-wave delivery to hardly-accessible tissues and internal organs
    • boosting the performance of THz spectroscopy and imaging, including improvement of operation rate, sensitivity and spatial resolution, with an emphasis on overcoming the Abbe diffraction limit;
    • improving the depth of THz-wave penetration into tissues using methods of immersion and compression THz clearing.
  • Fundamental problems of THz-radiation–tissue interactions:

    • physical models of THz-wave–biological tissue interactions, based on the well-known effective medium theory and the emerging THz radiation transfer theory; tissue phantoms;
    • effects of THz radiation on biological systems of different organization, such as solutions of biomolecules, single cells, cell cultures and 3D structures, and organisms; problems of THz dosimetry and therapeutic applications.

  • Early non-invasive, least-invasive, and intraoperative THz diagnosis of malignant and benign neoplasms with different localizations and nosologies.

  • Applications of THz technology in regenerative medicine, with particular attention to:

    • novel systems for diagnosis of the degree of tissue traumatic injury,
    • tissue viability assessment in surgery,
    • study of cell matrixes (scaffolds), interaction with water and tissues,
    • aiding modern technologies of 3D tissue bioprinting.

  • THz sensing of glycated tissues and blood, aimed at diabetes diagnosis.

Scope

    In biomedical optics and photonics, optical tools are employed for the understanding and treatment of diseases, from the cellular level to macroscopic applications. At the cellular level, highly precise laser illumination allows the manipulation, operation, or stimulation of cells, even in living organisms or animals. Optogenetics is an especially promising technique for manipulating cellular behavior and cellular networks in the brains of mice or other animals. Optical microscopy has been revolutionized by a thorough understanding of different markers and their switching behavior.

    Marker-free microscopy technologies, like coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering, second-harmonic generation, third-harmonic generation microscopy, or digital holographic microscopy are spreading into multiple biological and clinical imaging applications. OCT is continuously broadening its clinical applicability by becoming even higher resolution, higher speed, and more compact. In the broader field of optics and photonics, biomedical imaging and sensing are the most quickly progressing and expanding areas. Computational imaging techniques, such as light field imaging and compressive sensing, represent an attractive way to improve image quality. Techniques developed in these areas could greatly advance physical, engineering, and biological knowledge, as well as optics and photonics technology.

    This special section on biomedical imaging and sensing will be devoted to advanced biomedical imaging and sensing techniques. Topics of interest include:

    • medical and biological imaging instrumentation and techniques

    Scope

    Methods of Artificial Intelligence are permeating at an increasing pace all aspects of technology in society, and biomedical optical systems have a special need for these algorithms and resulting predictive models. This is because data in biomedical optics is commonly multidimensional, in time and space to capture dynamic and spatially varying phenomena, and uses multispectral and hyperspectral systems to detect specific molecular signatures in tissue, cells, and biofluids. Aspects of image and video sequences can require complex interpretation. The fact that the intended use of most medical optical systems is in real time and at the point of care, requires that the rich and complex information sets are distilled down to outputs that the attending medical staff can interpret. Additionally, discovery of multi-parametric information itself can require machine learning and deep learning algorithms simply to extract useful conclusions and ensure model portability across imaging systems and sites. This special focus issue will bring together a series of late breaking papers in original research aspects of artificial intelligence, with aspects related to machine learning and deep learning.

    Biophotonics19

    Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging
    Fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM) provides functional images of cellular and sub-cellar activity. The fluorescence lifetime probes the amount of time that a fluorophore remains in an excited state before returning to the ground state and emitting a photon. FLIM is a powerful technique to distinguish fluorophores with unique molecular environments that cannot be resolved using spectral techniques alone. FLIM leverages both endogenous and exogenous fluorophores to image biological variations in cells and tissues, including disease progression and drug response.

    Optical Micromechanics
    Optical Micromechanics uses light-based technologies to investigate the mechanical behavior of tissue, elucidating the role of tissue mechanics in disease etiology, progression, and prognosis.

    In addition to the above-mentioned topics, areas of interest for this special section include, but are not limited to:
    • Photoacoustic tomography or microscopy, acousto-optical imaging
    • Optical coherence tomography: light sources, systems, and applications
    • Nonlinear microscopy, coherent Raman scattering microscopy, and high-resolution microscopy techniques
    • Biomedical optical spectroscopy and imaging: systems and applications
    • Tissue optics
    • Optical trapping and manipulation, and their applications in biophotonics
    • Lasers, supercontinuum lasers, fiber lasers, and their biomedical applications

    All submissions will be peer reviewed. Peer review will commence immediately upon manuscript submission, with a goal of making a first decision within six weeks of manuscript submission. Special sections are opened online once a minimum of four papers have been accepted. Each paper is published as soon as the copyedited and typeset proofs are approved by the author.
