This issue of the journal is very special, focusing on the technology used in imaging, the current important advances therein, and the future. Thus this issue covers both the present status and the future, but more so focusing on the future. The reviews also discuss how these advances will positively impact clinical imaging, and detail specifically those advances that will likely become in the future the dominant standard of practice.

The fields of MR, CT, ultrasound, contrast media (with separate articles for MR and CT), standardization/quantification, and artificial intelligence are each covered in a review article overseen by a recognized expert in the field. All but the final topic are accompanied by an editorial, which summarizes the important points in the review article (for quick reading), and allows for further input on the topic from a slightly different viewpoint - to provide a more inclusive perspective.
