People who undergo root canals may soon have a tiny but powerful ally that could prevent infection after treatment.Researchers at theUCLA School of Dentistry and theUCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science found in a clinical trial that nanodiamonds protected disinfected root canals after the nerve and pulp were removed, thereby improving the likelihood of a full recovery. The findings are a milestone for the use of nanodiamonds in humans.Nanodiamonds are tiny particles made of carbon and are so small that millions of them could fit on the head of a pin. They resemble soccer balls but have facets like a...

Coincidentally, I received the request to write the Foreword to this issue on Magnetic Resonance Imaging Clinics of North America dedicated to Head and Neck Radiology as I was returning from the 2017 annual meeting of the American Society of Head and Neck Radiology. This issue, expertly edited by Dr Girish Fatterpekar, covers the most important topics discussed at this year ’s meeting! Therefore, I can undoubtedly say this issue of Magnetic Resonance Imaging Clinics of North America covers the most important and timely topics in Head and Neck Radiology.

Background and Purpose—Our goal is to determine the added value of intracranial vessel wall magnetic resonance imaging (IVWI) in differentiating nonocclusive vasculopathies compared with luminal imaging alone.Methods—We retrospectively reviewed images from patients with both luminal and IVWI to identify cases with clinically defined intracranial vasculopathies: atherosclerosis (intracranial atherosclerotic disease), reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome, and inflammatory vasculopathy. Two neuroradiologists blinded to clinical data reviewed the luminal imaging of defined luminal stenoses/irregularities a...
