Description : This issue reviews and updates a variety of topics in pancreatic imaging. Pearls on the Multiphasic CT of the pancreas are offered, along with the key MRI techniques for pancreatic imaging. Emerging CT, MR and US techniques for pancreatic evaluation (such as dual energy, DCMRI, spectroscopy, and US contrast) are elucidated. Ultrasound for pancreatic imaging is given a thorough review. An update on staging and resectability of pancreatic adenocarcinoma is discussed. Acute and chronic pancreatitis are reviewed, as well as cystic pancreatic lesions, congenital pancreatic anomalies, uncommon solid pancreatic neoplasms, and other pancreatic pathology. Post-operative imaging of the pancreas is discussed, and finally, an update on endoscopic techniques for the pancreas is provided.
Description : Imaging of the spine is given a thorough update in this issue, beginning with an article on spine segmentation, enumeration and normal variants. Imaging of degenerative disease of the spine is then reviewed, giving consideration to appropriate utilization of imaging, specificity and sensitivity shortcomings in evaluation of degenerative disease, risks and benefits of imaging of degenerative disease, and the prevalence of radicular and xial pain and underlying pain generators. Next, the validity and socioeconomic impact of spine imaging in evaluating “degenerative pain syndromes is reviewed. Pathophysiology and biomechanics of disc and posterior element of degenerative disease is reviewed, along with imaging of radiculopathy / radiculitis, imaging of central canal stenosis, and imaging of discogenic pain (using MRI and discography). Imaging of joint related axial pain, spine neoplasm, spine infection, and non-acute trauma is also covered.

Among the articles in this issue are discussions of Imaging of prostate cancer, the scrotum, male pelvic trauma, pelvic nodal imaging, penile imaging, MRI of the bladder, Imaging and male infertility, and trus prostate.
Description : This issue gives the general radiologist a solid overview of lung cancer imaging techniques. CT screening for lung cancer is discussed, and the evaluation and management of indeterminate pulmonary nodules is reviewed. Revised TNM lung cancer staging, as well as the optimal imaging protocols for lung cancer staging (CT, MR and PET) are thoroughly examined. A multidisciplinary approach to tissue sampling and updated histopathologic classification of lung cancer are discussed. Image-guided ablative therapies for lung cancer are reviewed. Finally, future trends in lung cancer diagnosis and staging and genetics are reviewed, as well as novel biomarkers for lung cancer detection.
