I am using default setting in LaTeX that show

Figure 1: Caption....

Now, I am following the format of Magnetic Resonance Imaging journal that require

Fig. 1. Caption

I tried to add the below line in the top, but it did not look like my expected

 \caption{MRI format.}

Could you help me to solve it? Thanks


Using caption package this is quite straightforward:


In this case, no \renewcommand{\figurename}{Fig.} is needed





 \caption{MRI format.}

    Thank Christian Huper. I run it, it change to **Fig.1: **. It still has ":", instead of . – user3051460 Nov 5 '15 at 15:33

    For tables, use: \captionsetup[table]{labelfont={bf},labelformat={default},labelsep=period,name={Tab.}} – kmario23 Dec 9 '20 at 23:45
