Dear Readers,


This month JCAT has a heavier than average focus on neuroradiology and musculoskeletal imaging. The lead paper by Murayama et al is important and especially worth noting, demonstrating how the "singular value decomposition method” commonly used for processing CT perfusion studies may falsely produce a region on shortened meat transit time (MTT) in stroke potentially affecting interpretation.


Many other good body imaging studies as usual can be found, as well as a new Radiologic Anatomy pictorial exhibit about the hand.


Happy reading!

Allen Elster
