"Translating radiological research into practice – from discovery to clinical impact"

Successful translation of radiological research into clinical practice requires multiple factors, including tailored methodology, a multidisciplinary approach aiming beyond technical validation, and a focus on unmet clinical needs. To increase impact and uptake of guidelines, radiologists must take the lead in radiological studies and strive towards the highest levels of evidence. The thematic series ‘Translating radiological research into practice – from discovery to clinical impact’ comprises excellent articles dedicated to describing the challenges unique to radiological research and presenting the factors behind the success of impactful radiological studies to provide guidance for future radiological research.
