More than 50 percent of all data generated in life sciences is in the form of image, but the potential use of this data is only partially tapped. The latest high-throughput image-acquisition devices in the laboratory produce thousands of images a day and volumes are increasing. While no system can supplant trained specialists, adopting systems to help bring objectivity and automation to image analysis can help streamline
research. The challenge is many current image-analysis software tools require considerable response time or temporary storage space. These performance requirements have continuously increased, especially when they are executed under real-time constraints. Actually medical imaging applications may involve different standards and different algorithms used at different stages of the processing chain.

JRTIP ‘Journal of Real-Time Image Processing’ is intended for researchers from both academia and industry, who are active in the multidisciplinary field of image and video processing. JRTIP bridges the gap between the theory and practice of image processing. It covers real-time image processing systems and algorithms for industrial, medical, consumer electronics, portable and embedded device applications. It presents practical, low-cost, and real-time architectures for image processing systems as well as tools,
simulation and modelling for real-time image processing algorithms and their implementations.

This special issue on ‘Real-Time Processing of Medical Images’ is intended to present the current state-ofthe-art in the field of parallel programming of imaging applications and the future trends for real-time medical image processing, including parallel computing (computational models, parallel algorithms and hierarchical memory optimizations), programming frameworks, real-time implementation of embedded medical image processing applications on parallel architectures: Multi-core platforms, GPU architecture, parallel modern workstations based on RISC processors, cell architecture, etc..

Authors are solicited to contribute to this special issue by submitting original and unpublished papers that illustrate research results, projects, surveying works and industrial experiences that are dealing with theory and applications within the theme of parallel computing for Real-Time Image Processing with emphasis placed on the real-time aspects of parallel programming of medical imaging application (parallel computational models, performance optimisation and hierarchical memory, new parallel paradigms to map
algorithms efficiently, low, medium level and coarse-grain algorithms, and embedded applications). Papers and reviewers are solicited in any of the following or related areas for parallel computing and realtime processing for:
