July 2018: Val M. Runge, MD, a note from the Editor
This issue of the journal, as always, has many outstanding articles, representing cutting edge research and technology in diagnostic imaging. Articles involving MR, PET/MR and CT are featured. Regarding MR, one article discusses current research and directions in terms of development of second generation gadolinium chelates and another the diagnostic utility of 7T for meniscal and cartilage assessment in the knee (and its superiority to 3T). Two CT articles feature important clinical advances using dual energy, the first for improved detection of acute ischemic stroke and the second for visualization of bone marrow edema (thus improving characterization of vertebral body compression fractures).
