About this Research Topic
Human medicine is based on state-of-the-art technology. Some recent advances, translated into practice, are mRNA technology, telemedicine, health wearables, and artificial intelligence in diagnostics, imaging, and drug discovery. Compared to humans, research focusing on technology in veterinary medicine is scarce and carried out by individuals rather than large research groups. With this special issue, we aim to promote research on various technologies in veterinary medicine. The recent technological advances improving animal health and well-being should be encouraged and disseminated. Moreover, we hope to connect various researchers with the same objectives, which could lead to potential joint ventures resulting in higher excellence and impact.
This special issue seeks manuscript submissions on all aspects of technology benefiting animal health, veterinary science, and livestock management. The papers should focus on client-owned animals, i.e., pets and farm animals. We appreciate all submission types,including original research, review, perspective, and clinical trial. The papers shall focus on, but
by no means limited to:
• Translating technology into practice and veterinary clinics,
• Veterinary imaging (e.g., X-ray, CT, MRI, US),
• Physiological monitoring systems (ECG, pressure monitors),
• Emerging diagnostic or therapeutic optics (e.g., OCT),
• Infra-red thermometers,
• Surgical and therapeutical lasers,
• Activity trackers,
• Farm management technology (e.g., cow monitors).
Keywords: veterinary medicine, veterinary imaging, biophotonics, medical devices, biomedical optics, diagnostics, translational medicine
