Medical Images

*At the discretion of the Editor, images may appear in the print version of the Journal, the electronic version, or both.

* You may either upload your figures separately or include figures in the text file.

* For figures, it is permissible to send low-resolution images for peer review, although we may ask for high-resolution files at a later stage.

* Please include one version of the figure with appropriate labeling and arrows identifying structures and one without labels and arrows. Each original should include an arrow indicating the top of the image. Occasionally, ICMs have more than one panel. Please label them Panel A, Panel B, etc. 

PHOTOGRAPHS OF PATIENTS:

  • Any information that might identify the patient or hospital, including the date, should be removed from the image.
  • If a photograph of an identifiable patient is used, then the consent form of “Release for Photographs of Identifiable Patients” from author’s institution affiliation is required and it should be declared to the Journal by submitting the consent form together with manuscript for Medical Imaging Report during submission process. 

Title

Include the following information:

  • Full title of the manuscript
  • Authors’ names (first and last names, middle  initial when commonly used by that author)
  • Institutional  affiliation  for  each  author  (use  super-scripted  numbers  after each author’s name)
  • Corresponding author: First and last names, middle  initial when commonly used by that author; Address and Email:

Keywords

Keywords are significant words in medical indexing. They are useful as a tool when researching for paper information from lists of medical journals.

Medical Imaging Finding

The legend to the image should succinctly present relevant clinical information, including a short description of the patient's history, relevant physical and laboratory findings, clinical course, response to treatment (if any), and condition at last follow-up. All labeled structures in the image should be described and explained in the legend. The legend should have callouts corresponding to each panel, if there is more than one. 

Discussion

Provide an interpretation of the results and assess their significance in relation to previous work in the field.

Conclusion

Conclusions should be supported by the data obtained in the reported study; avoid speculation not warranted by experimental results, and label speculation clearly.

Acknowledgements

All acknowledgements including financial support should be mentioned under the heading "acknowledgements" and not as footnotes on the first page or in the text.

References

Authors are responsible for the accuracy of their references. In manuscript, please number the cited references in chronological order and superscript them at the end of sentence. All references cited in the text (including those included in figure legends and tables) should be listed References.

Start the References on a separate page, and arrange citations in chronological order so that they will be in sequence with references cited in the text. List all authors when there are three or fewer; when there are four or more, list the first three, followed by "et al.", title of the article, journal name (in italics - use PubMed abbreviations), year of publication (followed by a semicolon), volume number (followed by a colon) and pages (first - last page numbers). Reference to electronic material should include author name(s), date, article title, and journal (as above); where volume and/or page numbers are not available, substitute Digital Object Identifier (DOI) number. Numbered references to personal communication, unpublished data, or manuscripts either "in preparation" or "submitted for publication" are unacceptable. If essential, such material can be incorporated at the appropriate place in the text.
