JACC: Cardiovascular Imaging has recently published two special issues: one dedicated to the topic of noninvasive imaging for the evaluation of diastolic function and the second to the value of left ventricular global longitudinal strain in cardiology.

Editor-in-Chief Y. Chandrashekhar, MD, DM, FACC, and Sherif F. Nagueh, MD, FACC, provide a summary of the January special issue in the Editor's Page and introduce the Journal's new multimedia series, "Case-Based Imaging Curriculum."

The issue addresses topics such as left ventricular as a predictor future events in asymptomatic elderly patients with risk factors for heart failure, whether diastolic dysfunction is a harbinger of future systolic dysfunction in cancer chemotherapy related cardiac dysfunction, and more.

The February issue contains six original research papers with accompanying editorials, including papers analyzing global longitudinal strain and in-hospital mortality in patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage and screening of relatives of patients with asymptomatic dilated cardiomyopathy.
