Application of machine learning (ML) techniques in image processing has produced new capabilities and tremendous advances in radiology, pathology, and genetics. Such techniques also hold great promise in advancing the design and development of various medical devices including emerging wearable devices. The use of ML has the potential to revolutionize the personalization of medical devices, improve therapeutic outcomes and improve patient well-being.

This Special Issue of the ASME Journal of Medical Devices will be a collection of original research that highlights the use of ML techniques for the design, development, and implementation of novel medical devices and technologies spanning the translational spectrum. Manuscripts submitted for this Special Issue should be at the intersection of medical devices and ML, where conventional imaging-related, algorithmic and other “software only” approaches are considered to be outside the scope of this issue. All avenues of experimental research from proof-of-concept demonstration to exhaustive assessment of new devices are encouraged. Due to the emerging nature of the topic, shorter communications or preliminary studies will also be considered. A small number of review articles providing a comprehensive introduction to the topic will be considered following prior discussion with the handling editors.

Topic Areas

  • Integration of ML in medical device design such as parametrization of device design 
  • ML-assisted optimization of therapeutic parameters
  • ML-enabled medical devices for applications such diagnostic assistance, imaging, and health monitoring
  • ML for wearable devices
  • ML for drug delivery technology and devices
  • ML for predicting therapeutic response or adverse effects of medical devices

Special Issue Publication Dates

Paper submission deadline: February 29, 2024
Publication date: June 2024
