Published Ahead-of-Print in JTI
Published ahead of print in JTI are three new articles. First, is the next installment in the Signs in Cardiopulmonary Imaging by Dr. Charlie Chia-Tsong Hsu and colleagues addressing the incomplete border sign. This sign can help distinguish pulmonary lesions from extrapulmonary lesions.

The second article is an original research article that describes the HRCT findings of chronic pulmonary microaspiration. Dr. Jorge Pereira-Silva and colleagues report on a series of 13 patients and show that centrilobular nodules and ground-glass opacity in a gravitationally dependent distribution. Furthermore, branching opacities and dependent consolidation may also be seen.

The final article is a compendium of the scientific and educational abstracts from the 2014 meeting of the Society of Thoracic Radiology, which was held in San Antonio, TX March 16-19.
