During the last 8 years AJNR has published 1 to 4 review articles per issue, which are a veritable “who’s who” and “what’s what” in clinical neuroradiology. Additionally, during 2007 to 2010 we also published a series of review articles on physics. From these 2 groups, I have taken a completely subjective approach to select not only my own favorites, but those that I think all neuroradiology fellows should read and that should eventually form part of their learning curriculum.
By creating this compendium, I hope that they will be read by our trainees and by anyone who is interested in reviewing practical and clinically relevant topics. It was not easy to choose and I have selected only the most general articles and the ones that I think have withstood, and will continue to withstand, the test of time. I have decided to organize these into general categories that follow those employed for the Journal’s table of contents. Some are listed twice if thought to pertain to 2 categories. I thank all of our readers who have been supportive of our Special Collections; they have become a popular and integral part of AJNR activities. Hopefully, as you peruse this collection, you will agree with me on the importance of the chosen articles.
