Frontiers journals are at the top of citation and impact metrics
The Cancer Imaging and Diagnosis Section is dedicated to the publication of results from clinical and research imaging studies applied to cancer discovery, diagnosis, and treatment.
The section will accept studies from the entire field of cancer imaging: results from the routine use of clinical imaging in both radiology and nuclear medicine, results from clinical trials, experimental molecular imaging in humans and small animals, research on new contrast agents in CT, MRI, ultrasound, publication of new technical applications and processing algorithms to improve the standardization of quantitative imaging and image-guided interventions for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
We are particularly interested to receive papers in the following areas:
-Clinical studies that address the relative contribution of different imaging modalities in the diagnosis and evaluation of treatment response in order to improve the overall accuracy of cancer imaging
-Research studies that aim to establish the role of new or existing imaging probes for the molecular characterization of cancers before and after treatment, with the ultimate goal of an individualized patient treatment
-Research studies that aim to establish the role of existing image-guided interventions or to develop new techniques and agents to improve the outcomes of interventions under image guidance

PMCID: all published articles receive a PMCID
Cancer Imaging and Image-directed Interventions welcomes submissions of the following article types: Case Report, Clinical Trial, Correction, Editorial, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review, Systematic Review and Technology and Code.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Cancer Imaging and Image-directed Interventions, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Cancer Imaging and Image-directed Interventions will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Oncology.
