The ability of the Canadian Association of Radiologists Journal (CARJ) to publish high-quality scientific and educational content is the direct result of the efforts of its peer reviewers. These tireless volunteers contribute their time and expertise to ensure that the material published in our journal is of the quality and rigour that our readers have come to expect.
In 2020, there were 103 individuals who reviewed manuscripts submitted to the CARJ. Among these reviewers, eight colleagues distinguished themselves by providing exceptionally high-quality and timely reviews, and we acknowledge their standout efforts with the 2020 CARJ Outstanding Reviewer Award.
