This issue marks the end of my fourth year as Editor of Ultrasound Quarterly. Time flies! Although I have not achieved all that I want when I began, I am hopeful that we can give our journal a more useful, interesting, and fleshed out web presence. More color images and video clips on line?
I am sure our readers will find the December 2008 issue of Ultrasound Quarterly both interesting and helpful.
Assistant Editor Carrie Sofka has reviewed the recent diagnostic ultrasound literature. I know we all appreciate her consistently superb insights into the literature.
We lead off with an excellent discussion of 3-dimensional ultrasound of the fetal face from Drs Ramos, Ylagan, Romine, Agostini, and Pretorius, from Dr Pretorius' group at University of California-San Diego. This is certainly topical, and I am sure you will find this both interesting and helpful. Drs Glanc, Salem, and Farine, from Sunnybrook Health Science Centre in Toronto, discuss "Adnexal Masses in the Pregnant Patient," a very practical topic.
From the University of Utah, Drs Winkler, Kennedy, Byrne, and Woodward share their experience with the Imaging Spectrum of Conjoined Twins. Their spectacular images are amazing. Drs Brody, Rodgers, and Horrow, from the Albert Einstein Medical Center, provide an excellent discussion of normal and near-normal sonographic findings after liver transplant. This is an increasingly important topic as liver transplant becomes a more common procedure. Nancy J. Benedetti and Drs Desser and Jeffrey from Stanford University share their considerable experience in the image findings in hepatic infections.
I am sorry to tell you that Dan Schwartz, our Senior Publisher for Wolters Kluwer Health, Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, is quite ill. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Dan and his family. Nancy Axelrod is our interim publisher. Nancy and I have had discussions regarding the future of Ultrasound Quarterly. I look forward to working with her.
This issue, I want to specially thank Gary Sudakoff, the Chair and the entire SRU Publications Committee. Gary and his committee have been and remain interested, helpful, and supportive. Thanks, too, to our hardworking Editorial Board.
I also wish to thank all of our reviewers. Without their hard work, the journal would not be possible. Our reviewers' suggestions help our authors improve the quality of the journal.
