Dear Readers,

This month’s JCAT begins with a great review from Elizabeth Snyder and her colleagues at Johns Hopkins who comprehensively describe and illustrate a new classification scheme for soft tissue vascular anomalies that has been widely adopted internationally. We should all be using this new terminology, which includes calling vertebral “hemangiomas” vertebral “venous malformations”.

For those with historical interest, a case report describing the CT imaging investigation of an Egyptian child mummy (Petamenophis) whose coffin was unearthed in the early 19th century.

And of course, a wide array of imaging articles in living subjects rounds out the issue!
