Dear Readers,

Please don’t miss the first two articles this month — white papers from the Society of Computed Body Tomography and MR (SCBT-MR) — that review current body and musculoskeletal applications of dual energy CT.  In case you missed them, the first two white papers (#1 and #2) were published in the last issue (Nov/Dec 2016) and are also well worth a look.

Elsewhere, a good sampling of science from around the world.

Happy reading!

Allen Elster
