In 1994 the three leading academic radiology societies in the United States, along with their counterpart among radiology residents, severed a long relationship with Investigative Radiology and its publisher JB Lippincott (now Lippincott-Raven) to found their own journal. Academic Radiology serves as the official journal of the Association of University Radiologists, the Society of Chairmen of Academic Radiology Departments, the Association of Program Directors in Radiology, and the American Association of Academic Chief Residents in Radiology.
The scope of this publication encompasses original clinical and laboratory investigations, educational research, administrative and health policy issues, and recent advances in radiology. The editors include nationally known members of the constituent societies. In addition, distinguished representatives of academic radiology from Australia, Japan, and western Europe serve as corresponding editors. Each issue of Academic Radiology contains five to seven original investigative articles. Other regular features include Preliminary Investigations, Administration and Management, Radiological Education
