This issue of the journal, as always, has many outstanding articles, representing cutting edge research and technology in diagnostic imaging. Critical new developments and findings in our field are presented, including that in MR, CT, contrast media, mobile radiography, deep learning, and radiomics. Not to be missed is the editor’s pick article, which once again demonstrates Gd deposition in the brain with gadodiamide, but not with macrocyclic gadolinium based contrast media, and importantly adding information regarding the change in T1 and T2 with age - which can be a confounding factor in investigative studies (with an increase in iron and manganese verified by laser ablation-ICP-MS). Of particular note, in the rapidly emerging important field of photon counting CT, are two outstanding articles, one evaluating virtual non-contrast imaging of the liver and the other fat quantification.
