Digital Technologies for Cardiovascular Disorders: Article Collection to be published soon

Digital Technologies Collection

BMC Cardiovascular Disorders acknowledges that progress in digital health and innovation is fundamental to the advancement of modern cardiology. We therefore announced a call for papers a few months ago on the topic of digital health and technology within the field of cardiology/cardiovascular diseases. See the collection articles as they get published here

Aims and scope

BMC Cardiovascular Disorders is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on the characterization, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the heart and circulatory system. The journal welcomes clinical, basic and translational science studies that provide insights into the pathophysiology, molecular and cell biology, genetics, pharmacology, or epidemiology of cardiovascular diseases. Articles on surgical advancements and new technologies aiding in the diagnosis, monitoring and computational modelling of cardiovascular disorders are also considered.   

Join our Editorial Board
