OAK BROOK, Ill. (Oct. 18, 2017) — The Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) announced today that it will begin publication of three new subspecialty journals in 2019. The journals will be published solely online and will cover the topics of cancer imaging, cardiothoracic imaging and machine learning/artificial intelligence.

The cancer imaging journal will address cancer screening, differential diagnosis and treatment planning across imaging subspecialties, organ systems and modalities and present an interdisciplinary perspective on cancer imaging.

The cardiothoracic imaging journal will emphasize research advances and technical developments in imaging that drive cardiothoracic medicine.

The machine learning/artificial intelligence journal will highlight the emerging applications of machine learning and artificial intelligence in the field of imaging across multiple disciplines.

“The RSNA Board of Directors is tremendously excited about the society’s new journals,” said board chair, Valerie P. Jackson, M.D. “These will build upon RSNA’s long tradition of publishing the premier journals in our field.”

RSNA currently publishes two peer-reviewed journals. Radiology is the authoritative reference for the most current, clinically relevant and highest quality radiology research. RadioGraphics, with outstanding educational content, is a leading source for earning continuing medical education credits.

The new journals will complement Radiology and RadioGraphics and provide a way to keep practicing physicians and imaging researchers up-to-date on the best emerging science in each subspecialty.

RSNA members will receive access to all of these journals as a benefit of membership.

The subspecialty journals will accept new submissions in 2018 and will also provide a forum for transferred submissions within the family of Radiology journals. Each journal will contain a mix of original research and topical reviews. The search for editors for the journals will begin in November 2017.

RSNA is an association of over 54,600 radiologists, radiation oncologists, medical physicists and related scientists, promoting excellence in patient care and health care delivery through education, research and technologic innovation. The Society is based in Oak Brook, Ill. (RSNA.org)
