Four articles have been named by the Journal of the American College of Radiology (JACR) as the "Best of 2016" based on their advancement of radiology.
The JACR editorial board selected four original peer-reviewed articles that integrate the journal’s areas of interests, which include health services, research and policy, clinical practice management, leadership and training and education.
“These articles, available as free access for the next three months, are must-read papers because of their importance to the radiology profession,” said Bruce J. Hillman, MD, JACR founding editor-in-chief in a press release.
