> fast and prompt medical analysis and prediction.
> This Special Issue intends to provide a comprehensive overview of
> recent, theoretical, computational, and/or practical advances in the
> medical/biomedical/microscopy image enhancement, analysis, and

> For more details please visit the special issue website:
> The manuscript submission deadline is *15 March 2019*. You could send
> your manuscript earlier or up until the deadline.Papers will be reviewed
> upon receipt and published on an ongoing basis.
> Extended conference papers are also welcome. They should contain at
> least 50% of new material, e.g., in the form of technical extensions,
> more in-depth evaluations, or additional use cases.
> Computers ( is a fully open access
