Journal of Biomedical Optics

Editor-in-Chief: Brian W. Pogue, Dartmouth College, USA

The Journal of Biomedical Optics (JBO) is an open access journal that publishes peer-reviewed papers on the use of novel optical systems and techniques for improved health care and biomedical research.

On the cover: The figure is from the article "Comparison of compressional and elastic wave simulations for patient-specific planning prior to transcranial photoacoustic-guided neurosurgery" by Michelle T. Graham, Reese A. Dunne, and Muyinatu A. Lediju Bell, in JBO Volume 26, Issue 7.
