This issue of the journal, as always, has many outstanding articles, representing cutting edge research and technology in diagnostic imaging. There are 4 articles featuring MR (with an additional article focusing on gadolinium deposition in brain nuclei following Omniscan administration, describing more fully the spatio-temporal pattern), one further exploring the capability of 3D cone beam CT for spine imaging and one examining further optimization of metal artifact reduction on CT of the ankle following arthroplasty (employing advanced techniques including modeled iterative reconstruction and dual energy virtual mono-energetic extrapolation). MR topics covered include compressed sensing for imaging of the internal auditory canal, diffusion tensor and morphologic imaging of peripheral nerves at 7T, and advanced imaging strategies for the pancreas and prostate.
