This issue of the journal, as always, has many outstanding articles, representing cutting edge research and technology in diagnostic imaging. Articles involving MR, CT and augmented reality are featured. Regarding MR, one article discusses optimization of workflow for whole-body imaging and another quantification of sodium concentration in prostate cancer. Two CT articles feature important advances offered by spectral CT, the first for improved coronary stent imaging and the second for low dose characterization of kidney stones.
