Editor’s E-Note

Like most of the radiology community, I’m back from RSNA, catching up on my work to clear the deck for the holidays, and putting plans in place for next year. Starting next month, Radiology Today will be printed monthly and offer a digital companion version to subscribers, including imaging professionals outside the United States.

We’re excited about the changes and serving our valued readers even better in the coming year. At the same time, we don’t want to rush through the holiday season. Take time to enjoy it with the people who matter most to you.

In case you didn’t make it to RSNA, this month’s e-newsletter provides some highlights from the meeting.
