Any quantity measured as a function of energy can release a spectrum. Hence, exploiting material properties via interaction with diverse forms of energy would lead to a kind of spectral sensor. Diagnostics is the most important step towards healing various diseases. A combination of clinical and paraclinical investigations with faster, minimally invasive and more accurate techniques, such as ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging, computer tomography, as well as real-time exploration in surgery, are highly desirable for a faster and less aggressive diagnosis. Food-borne and environmental diseases should not be neglected. The monitoring of treatment is, in the end, a result of a step-by-step diagnosis that includes the so-called follow up. Spectral sensors can be used to advance both our knowledge and new technology, especially nanotechnology. This leads to the creation of nanostructures and nanoparticles that have various interactions with electromagnetic fields, e.g., with infrared, UV-VIS, Raman spectroscopy, fluorescence, chemo-luminescence spectroscopies, to name only a few of the most common effects. Guidance in laparoscopic and reconstruction surgery is essential, and intraoperative diagnostics, for example in oncology surgery, should gain more recognition.
This Special Issue addresses the topics described above, but related research is also welcome. Short reports, animal care, and pure animal research (except animal models) are excluded.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com 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.
