Investigative Radiology will publish a special issue on 'Speed in MR' in
2017. The focus is on current significant advances in knowledge.
Relevant topics include basic science investigations, clinical studies,
and innovative clinical applications. With regard to clinical papers,
all organ and disease areas will be considered. Submitted manuscripts
should significantly advance our knowledge concerning methods (and
applications therein) for increasing the speed with which data is
acquired in MR together with innovative acquisition schemes that improve
image quality. The focus of any submission does not necessarily need to
be reduced scan time, which is simply one part of speed, with
additional possible focuses including image quality, sensitivity,
temporal and spatial resolution, and a decrease in image artifacts. Review articles, in particular those that are focused to a specific topic within the more general framework of 'Speed', will also be considered.
Manuscripts are now being accepted for consideration. The deadline
for submission is January 31, 2017. All papers will be subject to peer
review by experts in the field and must comply with the Journal's
Instructions for Authors.
I look very much forward to receiving your submissions.
