Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The development of artificial intelligence, a term coined by Prof. John McCarthy in the mid-1950s, has experienced dramatic momentum in recent years. Orthopedic and trauma surgery is traditionally a very technical branch of medicine, and the influence of increasing digitization will have a major impact on the practice of this field.

One of the great potentials of artificial intelligence lies in the evaluation of large amounts of data and the identification of critical parameters that allow the clinical outcome of patients to be estimated. Data models can, for example, estimate the risk of re-ruptures after cruciate ligament surgery. In addition, artificial intelligence has developed particularly rapidly in the interpretation of image data. AI ​​can help to increase diagnostic accuracy and to avoid errors. By modeling or simulation based on image data, patient-specific surgical procedures and implants can also be developed. Artificial intelligence can support the decision between an operative and a conservative therapy and can also assist during the operative procedure itself.

As part of this Special Issue, clinical applications are to be presented that can already support clinically active orthopedists and trauma surgeons.

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. Journal of Personalized Medicine is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
