Here is a nice, concise presentation on SOD. Although this is not an uncommon entity it may be sometimes confusing. I hope that trainees as well as neuroradiologists will enjoy and find it helpful.

“Brain Tumor Imaging, Volume 1: Pretherapy” is the latest Special Collection from the American Journal of Neuroradiology. Distilling the best of the many articles related to brain tumor imaging that appear in the pages of AJNR posed a daunting task, but Editor-in-Chief Mauricio Castillo knew that Collection Editor Soonmee Cha of the University of California, San Francisco would be successful. “Dr. Cha is a respected investigator, a contributor of high quality and clinically relevant articles to AJNR and other journals, and a member of our Editorial Board,” he explained. Dr. Cha chose to categorize and present this compilation of research … Continue reading >>
AJNR is constantly changing, many times thanks to suggestions made by our readers and others by decisions taken by myself and the senior editors. These are some of the changes that will happen this year:
Physics review articles: These have been very difficult to obtain despite due diligence of our two physics consultants. More importantly, they have not performed well and have been read, downloaded and quoted a surprisingly small number of times. For the time being we will discontinue them on regular basis and we are in the process of rethinking what would be best way to bring some … Continue reading >>
This week, the most read article in www.mdlinx.com comes from AJNR. This is very nice review article written by our colleagues from Boston Children’s Hospital.

This is an indication that the electronic journal is becoming more and more popular. The reference is as follows:
We are back from RSNA and it is time to post a new educational activity in our blog. This presentation, by one of our previous neuroradiology fellows, addresses the typical and atypical findings and utility of DWI in the evaluation of brain abscesses.… Continue reading >>
Neuroradiology after 2012 – The effect of new structure of the ABR certifying examination structure on neuroradiology training of residents and fellows and the future of Neuroradiology subspecialty certification (CAQ).
The American Board of Radiology is radically changing the initial certification and recertification examination process for radiology trainees. Beginning with residents entering training in 2010 the written ABR exam and the oral exam in Louisville will be history. In their place will be two new computer based image rich exams. The first exam (“Core exam”) will be given after 36 months of training and will cover all aspects of radiology … Continue reading >>
