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, artificial intelligence, IV contrast injection technique, and tomoelastography. Not to be missed is the first article, a review, looking at the future of imaging at 0.55 T, an emerging, exciting new field which will lead to development of next generation of MR scanners with excellent image quality, low cost, and widespread applicability. Fundamental advances in knowledge are featured in articles concerning CT radiation dose to the fetus and dual flow contrast injector protocols.
