    Aims and Scope


    Skeletal Radiology, the Journal of the International Skeletal Society, and the Official Journal of the Society of Skeletal Radiology and the Australasian Musculoskelelal Imaging Group, serves as a forum for the dissemination of current knowledge and information dealing with disorders of the musculoskeletal system including the spine. Although the radiological aspects of the many varied skeletal abnormalities are emphasized, the journal also adopts an interdisciplinary approach, reflecting the membership of the International Skeletal Society. Thus, the anatomical, pathological, physiological, clinical, metabolic and epidemiological aspects of the many entities affecting the skeleton each receive appropriate consideration.

    The format of the journal consists of two principal sections. One section, approximately one third of the journal, includes a number of short case presentations, including histological sections where relevant and a bibliography of the important references. Many of the cases published are selected from the extensive repertoire of material presented at the annual meetings of the International Skeletal Society, at which members of the society present a series of interesting and instructive proved cases over a three day weekend meeting. In addition, case reports from nonmembers of the Society are published if considered suitable, as determined by the Editor of the section. Nonmembers, therefore, are encouraged to send such cases for editorial consideration. The published cases in this section are selected carefully, not only for their esoteric qualities, but even more importantly, for their inherent value as teaching and, hopefully, learning exercises.The second section, which is approximately two thirds of the journal, is more traditional being concerned with the publication of proffered articles. Their selection is made by the editors-in-chief, who have the input of a distinguished board of editorial consultants, international in scope, representing multiple disciplines concerned with disorders of the skeleton. Although emphasis is placed on manuscripts of a radiological interest, articles submitted in inter-related disciplines are encouraged. It is also stressed that material dealing with all phases of radiology is welcomed. Thus, in addition to conventional diagnostic radiology, proffered subject material may cover nuclear radiology, computerized axial tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging where applicable.
