The Radiology Book Project

This is a call for authors!

Dear potential author,

The Journal of Radiology Case Reports develops in cooperation with the publisher McGraw-Hill and the educational Radiology community Radiolopolis, a revolutionary interactive book project.

We introduce a new, unique concept by cross-referring all book contents to truly interactive online contents, where readers are able to scroll through the image stacks, window/level and perform other functions similar as on the radiologist's workstation. These features have been adapted from the interactive Journal of Radiology Case Reports ( and the international educational Radiology community Radiolopolis ( who enjoy great popularity because of these unique features. This book series will be divided by sections (e.g. Brain, Chest, Pediatric etc.) - for each section one book. This will NOT be a textbook in a classic sense but a "rapid fire" case review with pertinent images and high yield information for the appropriate entity. Thus, this will be a fairly minimal amount of work for the author compared to elaborate textbooks. We provide more details about requirements and editorial process in our dedicated Author group which can be accessed at

We accept up to 3 authors for each subspecialty book. There are still several author slots left and we are therefore reaching out for motivated authors with experience/specialty training in the following areas:

  • Brain

  • Chest

  • Cardiac

  • Genitourinary

  • Head & Neck

  • Musculoskeletal

  • Nuclear Medicine

  • OB/GYN

  • Pediatric

  • Physics/radiation safety

  • Spine

The author needs to be at least fellow in that particular area to be eligible for application.

This book project is a worldwide endeavor and in collaboration with the international Radiology community Radiolopolis and the interactive Journal of Radiology Case Reports it will be a ground breaking publication which levers Radiology literature into a new dimension.

I thank you in the name of the entire editorial team and the publisher.
