The papers describe research into estimating the resolution of an optical coherence tomography medical imaging system and validating the use of microwave radiometry to measure temperature profiles in human tissue.

Both papers are free to download until the end of December 2012:

Validation of microwave radiometry for measuring the internal temperature profile of human tissue
A Levick, D Land and J Hand
Meas Sci Technol, 22, 065801 (2011)

Estimating the resolution of a commercial optical coherence tomography system with limited spatial sampling
P D Woolliams and P H Tomlins
Meas Sci Technol 22, 065502 (2011)

Sharon D'Souza, Publisher, Measurement Science and Technology, said:

"Our selection represents the breadth and excellence of the work published in the journal, and is intended to exemplify the high standard of work we aim to publish. The papers were chosen by the editorial team and editorial board as having been highly rated by referees and readers, downloaded and cited highly, and being examples of high-quality, well-executed, outstanding research."
