RSNA launches new publication focused on cancer imaging

The Radiological Society of North America announced Friday that it’s launching a new journal dedicated to imaging in oncology.

Radiology: Imaging Cancer is one of three new journals recently launched by the RSNA and will collect studies on clinical cancer studies across all disease types.

"We are delighted that RSNA has started this journal as a new venue for scientists and physicians to disseminate and learn the latest discoveries in cancer imaging,” editor Gary Luker, MD, associate chair for clinical research in the radiology department at Michigan Medicine, said in a statement.

Topics explored in the inaugural issue will include the radiation risks of molecular breast imaging, the evaluation of subtle liver lesions and  abbreviated gadoxetic acid-enhanced MRI.

Imaging Cancer—published bi-monthly and available only on the web—is currently accepting manuscript submissions on the use of imaging across the cancer spectrum. It’s also seeking reviews on new imaging technology and their connections to cancer biology and therapy.

"We want Radiology: Imaging Cancer to become a 'must-read' journal for anyone working at the intersection of imaging and cancer," Luker added.
