Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Imaging of the structure and function of the retina has relevance for both the clinic and basic research into animal models of diseases affecting the retina. They are increasingly being used in both settings and have provided invaluable information to scientists, clinicians and their patients. In this Special Issue the plan is to provide readers with an updated view of the most recent approaches and technologies in retinal imaging that are being considered or are already in use. Both methods directed towards retinal neural function and structure, the retinal pigment epithelium, the retinal vasculature as well as the choroidal vasculature and structure will be explained, and the main research findings obtained by these approaches provided. All aspects of retinal structure and function that can be examined by imaging methods will be under consideration, including fundus imaging and imaging of retinal layers with new approaches in optical coherence tomography (OCT), photoreceptor mosaic imaging, the various techniques to image both the structure and the function of the retinal and choroidal vasculatures, new imaging methods such as those based on interferometry to assess retinal function and electrical activity, and methods to assess retinal metabolism and oxygen saturation.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Diagnostics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
