In this article the author discusses aspects of the a report within the issue, titled "Sensitivity and Specificity of Noncontrast Magnetic Resonance Imaging Reports in the Diagnosis of Type-II Superior Labral Anterior-Posterior Lesions in the Community Setting," by Keith P. Connolly et al. Criticism of a lack of a standard for the diagnosis of Type-II superior labral anterior-posterior (SLAP) lesions and praise for the study's description of a realistic clinical practice are discussed.

    Intradural spinal tumours, although relatively uncommon, can be diagnostically challenging, and often result in significant morbidity. They can be subdivided according to their cell of origin and whether they are within the cord (intramedullary) or intradural but extramedullary in location. The...

    In this paper magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is investigated for monitoring lesions created by high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) in kidney, liver and brain in vitro and in vivo. Spherically focused transducers of 4 cm diameter, focusing at 10 cm and operating at 1 and 4 MHz were used....
