Special Issue: RF and Communication Technologies for Wireless Implants

An in-body medical device is a miniature device that is inserted in the human body to collect physiological signals and images or to act like a prosthetic device restoring certain body functions. In order for these devices to communicate with the external world, radio frequency (RF) wireless technologies are often used to maintain their operation for a longer period of time. This special issue includes seven interesting articles that tackle some of the existing challenges and design issues related to the use of RF and Communication Technologies for wireless implants.

A Novel Computerized Tool to Stratify Risk in Carotid Atherosclerosis Using Kinematic Features of the Arterial Wall

A Novel Computerized Tool to Stratify Risk in Carotid Atherosclerosis Using Kinematic Features of the Arterial Wall

In this paper, we address valid risk stratification for carotid atherosclerosis, which is a crucial public health challenge with major effects for both patient safety and state economies. The unexplored potential of kinematic features in assisting the diagnostic decision for carotid atherosclerosis was investigated within the framework of a computer-aided-diagnosis (CAD) tool. The results showed that the incorporation of kinematic features of the arterial wall in CAD may have a particularly favorable impact on the performance of image-data-driven diagnosis for carotid atherosclerosis.

Advanced Insulin Bolus Advisor based on Run-To-Run Control and Case- Based Reasoning

Advanced Insulin Bolus Advisor based on Run-To-Run Control and Case- Based Reasoning

This paper presents an advanced decision support system for people with T1DM which provides personalized insulin bolus recommendations. The proposed system runs on a smartphone and keeps the simplicity of a bolus calculator, while improving its performance with more adaptability and flexibility. Compared to currently available bolus calculators, the proposed technique has the potential to provide clear superior glycaemic control in T1DM management.

About This Journal

IEEE Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics (J-BHI) publishes original papers describing recent advances in the field of biomedical and health informatics where information and communication technologies intersect with health, healthcare, life sciences and biomedicine. Papers must contain original content in theoretical analysis, methods, technical development, and/or novel clinical applications of information systems.

Retitled from the IEEE Transactions on Information Technology in Biomedicine (T-ITB) in 2013, the J-BHI is one of the leading journals in computer science and information systems with a strong interdisciplinary focus and biomedical and health application emphasis. Topics covered by J-BHI include, but are not limited to: acquisition, transmission, storage, retrieval, management, processing and analysis of biomedical and health information; applications of information and communication technologies to the practice of healthcare, personal well-being, preventive care and early diagnosis of diseases, and discovery of new therapies and patient specific treatment protocols; and integration of electronic medical and health records, methods of longitudinal data analysis, data mining and knowledge discovery tools.

Manuscripts may deal with these applications and their integration, such as clinical information systems, decision support systems, medical and biological imaging informatics, wearable systems, body sensor networks, informatics in biological and physiological systems, personalized and pervasive health technologies (telemedicine, u-, p-, m- and e-Health) for public health, home healthcare and wellness management. Topics related to integration include interoperability, protocol-based patient care, evidence-based medicine, and methods of secure patient data.

Papers published by J-BHI are typically organised under section headings of Bioinformatics, Imaging Informatics, Sensor Informatics, Medical Informatics, and Public Health Informatics. These are complemented by managed special issues/sections covering topics that are of strategic importance to the journal, coordinated by guest editors who are leading experts in these fields. We particularly encourage large cohort studies with clearly demonstrated clinical translational values supplemented by online data sets or algorithms that can be shared by the research community.
