Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Cardiothoracic imaging has always attracted enormous interest not only among radiologists but also among clinicians, due to the technological innovations applied to cardiothoracic imaging. In fact, recent technological progress has allowed a significant increase in the diagnostic accuracy of cardiothoracic imaging methods, unthinkable until a few years ago. New CT and MR scanners have reached such high levels of technology and performance as to revolutionize diagnostic imaging of the heart, lungs, and large and small vessels in elective and emergency setting. New CT scanners with clear dose savings and time-saving technology are becoming safer and allow more accurate diagnosis in emergencies by directing clinicians towards the most appropriate therapeutic management, while the latest generation of MR scanners and new postprocessing software make cardiac MRI an increasingly one-stop-shop method in many heart diseases.
Finally, it is necessary to mention how artificial intelligence, radiomics, and deep learning have also become a hot topic in chest imaging, e.g., in lung cancer, pneumonia, or diffuse pulmonary disease.
Therefore, the aim of this Special Issue is to show how new technology applied to radiology can improve imaging diagnostic accuracy in more frequent, often life-threatening, but also less common cardiothoracic diseases.
