Aims and Scope: Abdominal Imaging

Abdominal Imaging seeks to meet the professional needs of the abdominal radiologists by publishing clinically pertinent original, review, and practice related articles.  Abdominal Imaging includes the gastrointestinal tract (hollow and solid organs), genitourinary tract (kidneys, ureters, bladder and pelvic imaging) and abdominal interventional radiologic procedures.  As the official journal of the Society of Abdominal Radiology (SAR) it is aligned with the mission and vision of the Society, and provides timely news about the SAR and its annual meeting.  The Journal seeks both international readers and authors.  Plain film radiography, fluoroscopy, ultrasound, computed tomography, nuclear medicine and magnetic resonance imaging are the modalities that encompass abdominal imaging. 


The review and acceptance process for the Journal are expeditious, with prompt notification of the authors. The on-line date of publication is the official date of publication—usually occurring less than a month from acceptance.  Publications in print occur several months later.  Color images are provided at no-charge, and the size of the images are large to enable easy and reliable review.  Special feature sections are commonly incorporated whereby several articles on a selected topic are included for a comprehensive subject review.  Multidisciplinary authors and topics are encouraged.  Case reports are generally not accepted unless they are the first report of a new disease or condition, or part of a special solicited section.  The Journal seeks to provide author feedback in a respectful, encouraging and mentoring style.


Abdominal Imaging is covered and abstracted in Index Medicus-MEDLINE, Current Contents/Clinical Medicine, Excerpta Medica/EMBASE, SCI, SciSearch and ISI/BIOMED.
