May 2017: Val M. Runge, MD, a note from the Editor
This issue of the journal, as always, has many outstanding articles,
representing cutting edge research and technology in diagnostic imaging.
Articles involving MR, CT, and chest radiography are featured, with two
focusing on 7 T (and the clinical applicability therein). Four articles
are of specific note - (1) a warning concerning increased gadolinium
accumulation following Omniscan administration with moderate renal
dysfunction, (2) the utility of high receiver bandwidth for metal
artifact reduction on MR, with the use of long echo trains
counterproductive, (3) the utility of 7 T for multiparametric MRI of the
prostate, and (4) the value of high resolution 7 T evaluation of
multiple sclerosis patients for improved assessment of lesion load.
