Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is published monthly.

Aim: To evaluate whether iodine density (ID) and normalized iodine density (NID) of tumor on rapid kV-switching dual energy CT is associated with histological parameters which influences disease prognosis in gastric cancer
Material and Methods: Twenty patients with gastric adenocarcinoma who had preoperative staging CT imaging dual energy mode in arterial phase were retrospectively included. Patients who had neoadjuvant treatment prior to surgery were excluded. ID and NID values were measured on arterial phase dual energy CT images on a dedicated workstation.
Results: ID and NID of the tumor were significantly lower in poorly differentiated tumors compared with well differentiated tumors (p=0.019, p=0.046), and also in patients with unfavorable histology compared with unfavorable histology group (p=0.005, p=0.042). There were no significant ID and NID value differences between patients with and without serosal infiltration, nodal metastasis, lymphovascular and perineural invasion, surgical margin involvement (p>0.05).
Conclusion: ID related parameters can be useful for predicting the prognosis of gastric cancer.

Keywords: Iodine density; dual energy CT; gastric cancer; histological parameters
