Biomedical microwave imaging and sensing have emerged as promising technologies in the field of healthcare. Leveraging the properties of microwaves, these modalities offer non-invasive and radiation-free alternatives for imaging and monitoring biological tissues. Building upon the principles of radar technology, biomedical microwave imaging utilizes low-power microwaves to penetrate tissues and generate detailed images. It has shown potential in various applications, including breast cancer detection, brain imaging, and monitoring physiological parameters. These techniques have the advantage of being cost-effective, portable, and safe.
The next steps towards the clinical use of biomedical microwave imaging and sensing involve addressing several challenges. Firstly, further advancements in imaging algorithms and machine learning techniques are needed to enhance image quality, improve resolution, and reduce artifacts. Secondly, validation studies and clinical trials are essential to establish the efficacy and reliability of microwave imaging and sensing in real-world healthcare settings. Moreover, the miniaturization and optimization of hardware components, such as antennas and sensors, will contribute to the development of compact and user-friendly devices suitable for clinical use. Finally, regulatory approvals are crucial to ensure widespread adoption and integration into routine clinical practice and into existing medical systems. By addressing these steps, these techniques hold great potential for revolutionizing medical diagnostics and monitoring, leading to improved patient outcomes and personalized healthcare.

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.
