Core Tip

Core tip: Three-dimensional biomedical imaging plays an important role in biology and medicine. We review recent progress on the applications of artificial intelligence (AI) in image reconstruction for biomedical imaging. We specifically focus on how to use AI technology to improve the performance of biomedical image reconstruction and propose possible future directions in this field. We believe that, with further development, AI technology will play an increasingly important role in biomedical image reconstruction.
