Abdominal Radiology (Journal) - Diagnostic Approach to Primary Retroperitoneal Pathologies: What the Radiologist Needs to Know (March 1, 2021)
Abdominal Radiology seeks to meet the professional needs of the abdominal radiologist by publishing clinically pertinent original, review and practice related articles on the gastrointestinal and genitourinary tracts and abdominal interventional and radiologic procedures. Case reports are generally not accepted unless they are the first report of a new disease or condition, or part of a special solicited section.
