With the growing worldwide epidemic of 2019 novel coronavirus, the World Health Organization highlights the importance of understanding its transmission and severity in order to improve its countermeasures. Dedicated to sharing the latest research and empirical studies on 2019 novel coronavirus infection and its imaging features, Chinese Journal of Academic Radiology is calling for papers relevant to imaging features of COVID-19.New Content Item

By February 20th, the Chinese medical teams have been publishing 20 radiological articles relevant to imaging features of COVID-19, involving more than 800 patients. There are numbers of scientific problems which yet need further research, including difference of novel coronavirus pneumonia imaging features in different populations and the relationship among imaging, pathology and prognosis.

Hence, Chinese Journal of Academic Radiology is calling for papers relevant to imaging features of COVID-19. Topics on COVID-19 include but not limit to:

(1) imaging features and differential diagnosis,

(2) relationship between imaging features and clinical manifestation,

(3) evolution of imaging characteristics and its prognosis,

(4) imaging features in children,
