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

Held to the same high editorial standards as RSNA’s premier research journal, Radiology, this new addition to the Society’s family of journals emphasizes the research advances and technical developments in medical imaging that drive cardiothoracic medicine.

“The body of clinically impactful imaging research and advancement has increased substantially over the past decade.
