Featured article: Automated assessment of paraspinal muscle fat composition based on the segmentation of chemical shift encoding-based water/fat-separated images
Proton-density fat fraction of the paraspinal muscles has become an important surrogate biomarker in patients with intervertebral disc disease, osteoporosis, sarcopenia, and neuromuscular disorders. The authors developed an automatic segmentation algorithm of the lumbar paraspinal muscles based on water-fat sequences.
Aims and scope
The goal of the journal is to provide a forum open not only to radiologists, nuclear physicians, or radiation therapists but also to other professionals such as physicists, biologists, chemists, bioengineers, and biomathematicians, experts in computer science, information technology, and bioinformatics, as well physicians working in medical imaging from other medical specialties such as pathologists, geneticists, neurologists, surgeons, cardiologists, and many more.
