Dear Readers,

Welcome to our Jul/Aug 2022 issue of JCAT! Our journal covers a broad range of cross-sectional medical imaging modalities and is affiliated with the Society of Advanced Body Imaging. Examples from this issue that we would note demonstrating imaging advancements include the following. Kim et al. reports on a 5 reader study comparing PI-RADS v2.0 and 2.1 for evaluating the challenging topic of transitional zone lesions in prostate imaging. Pinho et al. looks into correlating para-aortic lymph node CT findings with PET findings in patients with cervical cancer as a potential pathway for staging in situations where PET may be resource constrained. Smith et al. reviews what radiologist need to know in the era of notable advances in immunotherapy and targeted therapy for patients with melanoma.  Kim et al. reports on a study examining means to differentiate by imaging small hepatic abscesses from hepatic metastases, a challenging issue in oncologic imaging. Elsayes et al. reports on the impact of a 7 session online educational course on the principles of imaging targeted to medical students and interns taught by educators from multiple institutions. Jittapiromsak et al. report on a study evaluating the utility of diffusion weighted and dynamic contrast enhanced imaging for predicting treatment outcomes in nasopharyngeal cancer.​
