Journal enhances personalization.
This month Radiologic Technology marks 79 years in print and 2 years online. However, our recent reader survey suggests that a lot of you have yet to read Radiologic Technology on the Web. We hope you'll take a few minutes to find out what you've been missing. To read this issue on screen, just go to www.radiologictechnology.org. While you're there, you can take a Directed Reading quiz, search previous issues or print a copy of an article to share with a colleague.
We know you like the convenience of receiving a hard copy of the Journal in your mailbox every other month, and there are no plans to stop the presses on Radiologic Technology. But now you have 2 options for accessing the gold standard in professional continuing education, peer-reviewed research and practical job-related columns: online or on paper. Either way, Radiologic Technology is always at your fingertips.
The Journal is growing and changing in ways that might not be obvious to readers. We now print 2 slightly different versions of every issue of Radiologic Technology: One is of general interest to R.T.s; the other is targeted to a particular specialty and features a Directed Reading article for technologists with an interest in that area. So far this year, we've produced targeted Directed Readings on mammography, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. Upcoming targeted issues will focus on cardiovascular--interventional technology and ultrasound.
How do you make sure you're getting the version that interests you most? It's simple: Contact the ASRT and let us know your "area of interest." This doesn't have to be the area you're currently practicing in or the type of imaging you do most of the time. The choice is yours. If you decide not to choose an area of interest, you'll continue to receive the general-interest version of Radiologic Technology, and that might be just what you want. In any case, you can always read the entire contents of both versions online at www.radiologictechnology.org. And, as an added bonus, you also can access Radiologic Technology's sister journal, Radiation Therapist, online at www.asrt.org.
With this issue we introduce a new cover artist. Mary Lambert is an Albuquerque-based fine artist and owner of a graphic design and illustration studio. She has worked with a wide variety of clients, including several health care organizations, and exhibits her award-winning work at area galleries and art fairs. Ms. Lambert plans a series of original oil paintings for the Journal covers that will tie in creatively with Directed Reading articles. This issue's cover was inspired by the article on Paget disease.
I'm always interested to hear your thoughts about the Journal. E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On behalf of the millions of patients you image, treat and care for each year, thank you for your efforts. You don't hear it nearly often enough.
Kathryn Faguy, ELS is editor of Radiologic Technology.
