Dear Colleagues,


Medical imaging has revolutionized the diagnosis, treatment, and management of various medical conditions. Medical imaging plays a crucial role in the diagnosis and treatment of various medical conditions. These imaging techniques include X-rays, gamma-rays, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and nuclear medicine. However, the use of medical imaging techniques involves the use of ionizing radiation, which can be harmful to human health. Therefore, it is essential to explore and implement effective strategies for radiation protection in medical imaging.

Various aspects of medical imaging and radiation protection topics of interest may include, but are not limited to:

· Novel imaging techniques that reduce radiation exposure

· Radiation protection strategies and best practices

· Radiation safety culture in healthcare organizations

· Dose optimization and quality assurance in medical imaging

· Patient education and communication regarding radiation risks and benefits

Radiation protection in medical imaging involves minimizing the risks associated with exposure to ionizing radiation. This can be achieved through various means, such as the use of appropriate shielding devices, reducing the number of unnecessary imaging procedures, and using imaging techniques that require lower doses of radiation. In addition, medical professionals involved in medical imaging should be trained in radiation protection measures to ensure the safety of patients, healthcare workers, and the general public.

Contributions from diverse fields such as radiology, nuclear medicine, medical physics, nuclear science/technology, nuclear physics, radiation research, radiation protection materials and healthcare management are welcome. We encourage authors to submit their work that will help in advancing the knowledge and practice of medical imaging and radiation protection.

Our scientific journal provides a unique platform for sharing research, insights, and perspectives on critical healthcare issues. With a rigorous peer-review process and wide readership, your contribution will have a significant impact on the field and will be a valuable addition to the scientific literature.

We look forward to receiving your submissions and contributing to the advancement of medical imaging and radiation protection.
