Advanced Image Segmentation and Modeling for 3D Printing in Medicine

Currently the journal 3D Printing in Medicine is looking for submissions to the thematic series on "Advanced Image Segmentation and Modeling for 3D Printing in Medicine".

Medical 3D printing applications continue to expand, making the need for accurate, rapid image segmentation and 3D modeling an important component of a hospital-based workflow.  This series aims to highlight original research and comprehensive review articles that focus on image segmentation, 3D modeling and quality control of anatomic models and associated devices.

This collection of articles is being sponsored by Materialise, and all submissions will undergo the regular peer review process.

Now open for submissions! Please indicate that your are submitting to the thematic series "Advanced Image Segmentation and Modeling for 3D Printing in Medicine". For pre-submission inquiries please reach out to the guest editor Dr. Nicole Wake (nwake@montefiore.org).
