American Heart Association's 3rd new journal -- Circulation: Cardiovascular Imaging

June 16, 2008

The American Heart Association has named the editor of Circulation: Cardiovascular Imaging. Scheduled to launch in mid-July, the journal is the latest in a series of six new titles to be published under the banner of Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association. The journals will be published by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, a part of Wolters Kluwer Health.

Marcelo F. Di Carli, M.D., director of cardiovascular imaging and associate professor of medicine and radiology at Brigham and Women's Hospital, will serve as editor of the new journal.

Circulation: Cardiovascular Imaging will feature the highest-quality research articles in one of the fastest-growing areas of cardiovascular medicine. "Our journal will provide a focal point for all professionals with an interest in the growing field of cardiovascular imaging, contributing to improved scientific understanding and ultimately to improved care for patients with cardiovascular disease," Di Carli said.

"As new cardiovascular imaging techniques are introduced and integrated, we are witnessing cross-training of physicians and scientists in a broad spectrum of imaging technologies, with the emerging notion of a cardiovascular imaging specialist," said Di Carli, who is also an associate editor for Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association. "The science resulting from these efforts has increasing difficulties getting published in general cardiology journals, where it competes with a broad spectrum of articles. This presents a unique opportunity for Circulation: Cardiovascular Imaging to attract top articles, address controversial topics, and stimulate the growth of patient-centric imaging research"

"The release of this third member of the Circulation portfolio of cardiovascular specialty journals is yet another exciting moment in this year of new journal releases," said Joseph Loscalzo, M.D., Editor-in-Chief of Circulation and the Circulation subspecialty journal family. "Under the stewardship of its editor, Dr. Marcelo DiCarli, this journal will doubtless become a primary source of cutting edge information in the rapidly expanding field of cardiovascular imaging."

Circulation: Cardiovascular Imaging will focus on new translational and clinical research on noninvasive imaging technologies, including echocardiography, radionuclide imagine, PET/CT, cardiovascular CT and MRI, molecular imaging and anatomic and functional vascular imaging. Timely review articles will include updates on current applications of cardiovascular imaging, new imaging technologies and their clinical roles, issues in imaging research, and translational aspects of molecularly targeted imaging research. Regular features will include series on advances and controversies in cardiovascular imaging, case reports, editorials and letters to the editor.

Circulation: Cardiovascular Imaging is the third of the new Circulation portfolio of journals, designed to meet the growing demand for tightly focused information in areas at the cutting edge of cardiology. Circulation: Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology and Circulation: Heart Failure premiered recently. The remaining three titles - Circulation: Cardiovascular Genetics; Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes; and Circulation: Cardiovascular Interventions - are scheduled for launch later in 2008.

Each issue of Circulation: Cardiovascular Imaging and the other new journals will be available in both print and online formats. The journal Web site, http://circimaging.ahajournals.org, will launch when the first issue is posted in mid-July and will also present "Publish Ahead of Print" articles and other online features.
