As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
COVID-19 and impact on peer review
Featured article: 7-T clinical MRI of the shoulder in patients with suspected lesions of the rotator cuff
Whilst MRI is the most effective method for the visualisation of shoulder pathologies, the use of 7-T MRI in diagnostics of the shoulder is still in its infancy when compared to many other parts of the body. In this study, Lazik-Palm et al demonstrate that 7-T MRI images of the shoulder can be produced of diagnostic image quality, paving the way for potential clinical applications.

Aims and scope
European Radiology Experimental is a fully open access official journal of the European Society of Radiology. Its mission is to adhere to the multidisciplinary paradigm of the 21st century, fostering a strong connection between radiology in the experimental setting and basic science. Research on phantom studies, cell models and radiobiology, animal models, new modalities/techniques (e.g., MR sequences or spectral CT applications, molecular, hybrid, and optical imaging), novel contrast materials, tracers, and probes are welcome. Other topics fully considered are: 3D-modelling, printing, and simulation; advanced teleradiology (e.g., virtual physician-patient interaction); novel image reconstruction algorithms and post-processing.
