We’re Embarking on a New Direction

pdf path

The Applied Radiology crew is expanding and sailing into new waters. As we endeavor to continue providing you with the highest quality content, it has become clear that we can use more hands on deck to develop a growing cargo of review articles, cases, departments, and columns.

Indeed, in an effort to better reflect modern radiological practice, we are renaming or eliminating some technology-based imaging categories and replacing them with body system-based categories. The CT/MRI category, for example, is being eliminated, while Gastrointestinal Imaging is now Body Imaging and Chest Imaging is now Cardiopulmonary Imaging.

We are also in the midst of building upon our Editorial Board with a panel of specialty-specific Associate Editors to help strengthen our peer review process and to enhance the breadth and depth of our offerings. I am delighted to announce the first of these consulting Associate Editors:

  • Lawrence N Tanenbaum, MD, FACR, will oversee our new Artificial Intelligence section. Understanding this fast-moving field is becoming vital for all radiologists. You can expect an “Eye on AI” column in every issue of Applied Radiology, delivering valuable, applicable insights into AI and all it promises for medical imaging.
  • David C Youmans, MD, FACR, a new board member, will oversee a new board section on Advocacy and Governmental Affairs, providing important, practical information on legal, regulatory, and other issues impacting the radiological community.
  • Jennifer Cranny, MD, long the unofficial champion, along with Thomas Pope, MD, of our popular Radiological Cases, will officially assume the role of Associate Editor for Radiological Cases.
  • Charles S White, MD, will oversee our newly renamed section of Cardiopulmonary Imaging. The revised title will more accurately reflect the comprehensive content we will offer under Charlie’s direction.
  • Alexander J Towbin, MD, will oversee Pediatric Imaging. You may recognize Alex, along with his father, Richard B Towbin, MD, FACR, as the longtime leaders of AR’s website-based Pediatric Digital Community. Thanks to their outstanding leadership and the sponsorship of our corporate partner, Guerbet, LLC, the community is celebrating its fifth anniversary! Nearly 50 pediatric Radiological Cases reside in the Community, as well as in the print edition of Applied Radiology, and there are more to come.

We are also thrilled to welcome several new Editorial Board members:

  • Sonia Gupta, MD — Artificial Intelligence;
  • Seth M Hardy, MD, MBA, FACR — Advocacy and Governmental Affairs;
  • K Elizabeth Hawk, MS, MD, PhD — Nuclear Medicine;
  • Saurabh Jha, MD — Cardiopulmonary Imaging;
  • Minhaj S Khaja, MD, MBA — Interventional Radiology;
  • Ryan K Lee, MD, MBA — Advocacy and Governmental Affairs; and,
  • Kristen K Porter, MD, PhD — Body Imaging.

Rest assured, we’re just getting started. We are working to identify additional associate editors and editorial board members, and we will share them with you in the coming months. In the meantime, please take a moment to review our masthead for more information on our new appointees.

I am excited and honored to be working with our entire Editorial Board to continue providing you with the most up-to-date and valuable medical imaging relevant to your daily practice. As always, I look forward to your feedback.
