Your opinions, please. (Editor's Letter).

With this issue we introduce a new evaluation form on the back of our Directed Reading (DR) answer sheets. The DRs in Radiologic Technology are one of the most valued benefits of ASRT membership, and we want to ensure that they are as useful and interesting as possible. These evaluations will help us improve our DR program by giving us a clearer picture of what members want and need from Directed Readings. Please take a few moments to fill out the form after you complete one of the quizzes. Your input is important to us and will shape future Directed Readings.

This issue also marks the start of a new volume year--Radiologic Technology's 74th!--and in keeping with tradition we introduce a new cover artist. ASRT Art Director Julie James-Griego created award-winning cover art for Radiologic Technology 2 years ago. In the series of 6 images that begins with this issue's cover, Ms. James-Griego will explore elements of nature.

She combines multiple digital images to create her complex artwork. Below are 2 of the layers that make up this issue's cover art: photos of a bent knee and a tree branch with a knot.

This cover illustration conveys the similarities and differences between objects in the natural environment and the human body. What is intriguing, Ms. James-Griego points out, is how visually similar the 2 very different objects are and the illustration's resemblance to a diagnostic medical image. When the images are combined, the knee joint area becomes a particularly interesting "hot spot," she added. The images were captured with a digital camera and then manipulated using Adobe Photoshop (image-editing software) on an Apple Macintosh computer.
