Nowadays, deep learning has spread over almost all fields. In healthcare and medicine, an immense amount of data is being generated by distributed sensors and cameras, as well as multi-modal digital health platforms that support audio, video, image, and text. The availability of data from medical devices and digital record systems has greatly increased the potential for automated diagnosis. The past several years have witnessed an explosion of interest in, and a dizzyingly fast development of, computer aided medical investigations using MRI, CT, Xrays images etc. Researchers, having reached a deeper understanding of the methods and on one hand are proposing elegant ways to better integrate machine learning with neural networks in complex problems (such as image reconstruction), and on the other hand are advancing the learning algorithms themselves. Note that medical imaging data may include 2D images, image volumes, and 3D geometric data (e.g., point cloud) etc.

This special issue focuses on deep learning techniques for health and medicine, including but not limited to:

Intelligent medical and health systems

Novel theories and methods of deep learning for medical imaging

Drug discovery with deep learning

Pandemic (e.g., COVID-19) management with deep learning

Health and medical behavior analytics with deep learning

Medical visual question and answering

Un/semi/weakly/fully- supervised medical data (text/images)
