Journal of Medical Imaging

Editor-in-Chief: Maryellen L. Giger, The University of Chicago, USA

The Journal of Medical Imaging (JMI) allows for the peer-reviewed communication and archiving of fundamental and translational research, as well as applications, focused on medical imaging, a field that continues to benefit from technological improvements and yield biomedical advancements in the early detection, diagnostics, and therapy of disease as well as in the understanding of normal conditions.

On the cover: "Toward fairness in artificial intelligence for medical image analysis: identification and mitigation of potential biases in the roadmap from data collection to model deployment" by Karen Drukker, Weijie Chen, Judy W. Gichoya, Nicholas P. Gruszauskas, Jayashree Kalpathy-Cramer, Sanmi Koyejo, Kyle J. Myers, Rui C. Sá, Berkman Sahiner, Heather M. Whitney, Zi Zhang, and Maryellen L. Giger, in Volume 10 Issue 6.
