January 2019: 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. Two articles examine practical applications of deep learning (artificial intelligence). Papers featuring MR advances constitute the bulk of the January issue. Highlights include optimization of metal artifact reduction using compressed sensing SEMAC, improved detection of spondylolysis with UTE 3T MR, and further demonstration of the utility of higher SNR at 7T for potential clinical applications (in this instance for DTI of skeletal muscles).
