May 2013 issue of JTI published

The May issue of Journal of Thoracic Imaging has been published.  The main focus of this issue is a symposium on thoracic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).   Included in this symposium is a CME and self-assessment module (SAM) article entitled “Magnetic Resonance and Computed Tomography Imaging of Structural and Functional Changes of Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension” by M. Schiebler and colleagues.


Other articles in this symposium include:


“Magnetic Resonance Imaging for Lung Cancer” by H. Koyama et al.


“Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Cystic Fibrosis Lung Disease” by M. Wielpütz et al.  


“Thoracic Magnetic Resonance Imaging for the Evaluation of Pulmonary Emphysema” by S. Lee et al.


“Thoracic Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Pulmonary Thromboembolism” by C. Fink et al.



In addition to this symposium, the May issue of JTI includes the next entries in the “Expert Opinion” and “Signs in Cardiopulmonary Imaging” series.  This issue’s expert opinion asks why MRI continues to be underutilized in thoracic imaging.  J. Lempel and colleagues from the University of Maryland present a discussion on the nubbin sign.


Web Exclusive content includes a pictorial essay on the spectrum of thoracic melioidosis by Ko et al. and notes from the 2012 annual meeting of the Korean Society of Thoracic Radiology focusing on asbestos-related thoracic disorders.
