This issue of the journal, as always, has many outstanding articles, representing cutting edge research and technology in diagnostic imaging. Critical new developments in our field are presented. Highlights of the issue in MR include an article on simultaneous multislice (SMS) diffusion-weighted imaging of the kidney at 3 T and another on advances enabling efficient high-resolution 3D MR spectroscopy at 7 T, enabling protocols to be tailored for speed, investigation of small pathologic details, and low-abundant metabolites. Two important investigations using elastography are also presented, one in brain MR demonstrating the potential for diagnosis of NPH and the other in ultrasound providing an important evaluation of repeatability and agreement across six different platforms. Three final articles highlight current topics of interest, specifically photon-counting detector CT (for abdominal imaging), deep learning for generating time of flight MRA images, and evaluation of a Gd based molecular marker (contrast agent) for fibrin (and specifically the assessment of tissue injury and inflammation).
