The International Journal of Cardiovascular Imaging

X-Ray Imaging, Intravascular Imaging, Echocardiography, Nuclear Cardiology, Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Publishing model:


The International Journal of Cardiovascular Imaging publishes research and clinical communications (research articles, review articles, brief reports and editorial comments) dealing with the design, development and evaluation of imaging methods and their clinical research applications used to study cardiovascular diseases.These imaging modalities include Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Multi-Slice Computed Tomography (MSCT), X-ray imaging, Intravascular Imaging (IVUS & OCT), Nuclear Cardiology and Echocardiography. Clinical applications of the imaging approaches are used in the diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, and follow-up of patients with cardiovascular disease. Topics include among others: single- or multi-center studies dealing with validations of new or existing approaches, proof-of-concept of new innovations, risk stratification and prognostification, imaging utilization, including cost-effectiveness studies, applications for better characterization of the presence and extent of cardiovascular diseases, assessment of the efficacy of new drugs and interventional devices, multi-modality registrations, etc.

Target Audience:
Cardiovascular medical specialists (incl. in-training and fellows) and other health care professionals with an interest in cardiovascular diseases associated with imaging in the various imaging modalities, such as diagnostic cardiologists and radiologists, interventional cardiologists and radiologists, cardiovascular radiologists, imaging specialists, cardiovascular researchers, and cardiothoracic surgeons. In addition, medical physicists, scientists, engineers and informatics specialists working on the development of new imaging tools, as well as data processing / analysis for the study of cardiovascular diseases. Representatives from industries, organisations and governments involved in providing products or policies for the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases.

This is a transformative journal, you may have access to funding.

  • CALL FOR PAPERS: Cutting Edge Cardiovascular CT

    Cardiovascular CT has evolved rapidly in the last two decades, now well established as a first-line imaging modality in several cardiovascular diseases. Technological advances in cardiovascular CT and MRI have happened at an astounding pace, with several already incorporated in clinical practice. Cutting edge techniques such as photon counting CT, spectral CT, artificial intelligence, radiomics, flow stimulations, 3D printing, extended reality, plaque and myocardial characterization have improved visualization of structures and provided novel insights into pathophysiology and biomarkers. Knowledge of these cutting-edge techniques is important for a cardiovascular imager to determine the optimal imaging technique for cardiovascular diseases and guide management.

    We are planning a Topical Collection on Cutting Edge cardiovascular CT, both review and original research articles under the leadership of guest editor Prabhakar Shantha Rajiah. We invite cardiovascular imagers to submit high quality original research articles for this issue.

    Please submit your contribution via our online submission system by selecting the appropriate article type, “Original article” or “Review article”.
    During the submission procedure you will be able to indicate that your article belongs to the special issue “Cutting edge cardiovascular CT”. Please also see the submission guidelines.
    Submitted manuscripts will undergo regular peer review process.
