​The November issue of the Journal of Thoracic Imaging is out.   Three symposium articles on cardiac MRI are included covering current concepts in ARVD, MRI applications in infiltrative cardiomyopathies, and an update on the clinical role of MRI in nonischemic cardiomyopathies. Four original articles are also included in this month's journal including a systematic review on coronary-pulmonary fistula.  Online publications include JSTR Meeting Notes, abstracts from the ESTI 2016 Thoracic Summit, and an addition to the Signs in Cardiopulmonary Imaging section--The Segmental Contour Pattern.  In addition to the original research articles, there are two review articles on cutting edge technology in the setting up cardiothoracic imaging: the first on cardiothoracic applications of 3-D imaging and the second on thoracic MRI imaging using hyperpolarized gas in young adults and children.
