This issue of the journal, as always, has many outstanding articles, representing cutting edge research and technology in diagnostic imaging. Two articles further investigate gadolinium retention following linear GBCA administration, providing critical findings regarding patient age and chelation therapy, with the importance of pediatric research emphasized by the accompanying editorial. Papers featuring MR advances constitute the bulk of the February issue. Highlights include demonstration of further applicability of MR elastography (in lupus nephritis), the use of T1 mapping for grading renal cell carcinoma, showcasing gadoxetic acid-enhanced 3D MRC with iterative denoising for evaluation of the biliary tree in living liver donors, and the demonstration that machine learning with multiparametric MR of the breast enables early prediction of response to chemotherapy as well as survival outcomes. Although the majority of articles in this issue focus on MR, an important CT article highlights the use of a new technique (frequency selective non-linear blending) to improve substantially detection of brain metastases by this modality. An additional excellent article highlights the clinical utility of synthetic 2D mammography.
