This issue of the journal, as always, has many outstanding articles, representing cutting edge research and technology in diagnostic imaging. An innovative large clinical study looks at the topic of individually body weight adapted iodinated contrast media injection in liver CT at 90 kVp. A second excellent article provides further important information regarding measurement of signal intensity ratios in MR, looking at the impact of different MRI equipment. A third article describes advances at 7 T for clinical knee imaging, specifically regarding optimization of fat suppression. A fourth paper details an important advance in robotic angiography systems, specifically for TACE. The remaining four papers, all describing important advances in clinical imaging, are each showcased with a figure, which includes exciting results with photon-counting detector CT in the lung.
