Call For Papers
The International Journal for Computer Assisted Radiology and Surgery (IJCARS) is a peer-reviewed journal to provide a platform closing the gap between medical and technical disciplines and to encourage interdisciplinary research and development activities in an international environment.

The focus of the journal is on R&D areas relating to digital imaging methods and computer-assisted diagnostic and therapeutic workflows that match and enhance the skill levels of health care professionals.

IJCARS invites submissions on topics in information sciences, ICT, and mechatronic systems design as well as clinical application fields such as:

    Medical imaging, e.g. CT, MR, US, SPECT, PET, DR, molecular imaging, and virtual endoscopy

    Image processing and display

    3D, 4D, and 5D imaging

    Hospital-wide PACS and telemedicine

    Computer applications for e.g. neurosurgery, head and neck, orthopaedics, ear nose and throat, cardiovascular and thoracoabdominal surgery, and plastic/reconstructive surgery

    Image-guided therapy

    Surgical robotics and instrumentation

    Surgical navigation

    3D modeling and rapid prototyping

    Postoperative result assessment

    Surgical education and training

    Haptics and multimodal devices in medical applications

    Methods of validation and verification

    CAD for breast, prostate, chest, colon, skeletal, liver, brain, and vascular imaging

    Cranial and maxillofacial image-guided surgery

    Surgical workflow

    Surgical DICOM and IHE

    Digital operating room

IJCARS will present results from these fields in original papers, review articles, short communications and commentaries.

To increase the value of health care for the general populace, one focus of IJCARS is on providing information on new diagnostic and therapeutic processes which are facilitated by CARS. This includes providers' experiences, patient outcomes, economic and ethical considerations, and scientific/medical validation results. It is expected that the resulting awareness by users and providers will accelerate the acceptance of CARS-supported procedures in clinical practice.
