Abdominal Radiology (Journal) - Fertility-Sparing for Young Patients with Gynecologic Cancer: How MRI can guide patient selection prior to conservative management. (October 2017)

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.
