Summary

Objectives: To summarize current research in the field of sensors, signals, and imaging in medicine and the impact of it in the medical informatics field through the selection of important and representative papers. Methods: Survey of the 2007 biomedical literature in the area of sensors, signals, and imaging informatics. Results: The review process of many candidate papers reflects the large variety of this research field. Four articles were finally selected with the help of the reviewers representing the important domains of brain-computer interfaces, brain shift correction, computer-aided interventions, and wearable sensors. Conclusions: The four selected papers show the wide variety in medical informatics research concerning sensors, signals, and images. Imaging and signal research becomes increasingly broad and the number of techniques available and used in clinical practice is enormous and constantly increasing. The selected articles can only present a few highlights and many important topics had to be left out of this overview.
