RSNA launches new cardiothoracic imaging journal

RSNA has published the first issue of its new online journal, Radiology: Cardiothoracic Imaging.

The journal, available here, is edited by Suhny Abbara, MD, professor of radiology and chief of the Cardiothoracic Imaging Division at UT Southwestern Medical Center and medical director of Parkland Cardiothoracic at Parkland Health & Hospital System, both in Dallas.

“The body of clinically impactful imaging research and advancement has increased substantially over the past decade,” Abbara said in a prepared statement. “There is now a strong need for a platform for scientific exchange and for dissemination of meaningful cutting-edge subspecialty imaging content. Radiology: Cardiothoracic Imaging will address the demand for a venue in which to publish high-quality curated cardiothoracic imaging content and will highlight scientific advances and technological innovations in medical imaging as they relate to advancements in cardiac, vascular and pulmonary medicine.”

The journal’s debut issue includes an editorial from Abbara and several in-depth research articles. It is now accepting manuscript submissions that focus on cardiac, vascular or pulmonary imaging.

“We are excited and honored to provide a platform for knowledge sharing and advancement of cardiothoracic imaging and medicine,” Abbara said in the same statement. “This journal is dedicated to improving patient care through the dissemination of imaging-related science, innovation and education, and we look forward to partnering with our readers and authors for decades to come.”

The first issue of RSNA’s Radiology: Artificial Intelligence journal debuted back in January.
