All but 3 of the top 25 articles in 2020 were on COVID-19. The other 3 were on MRI contrast advances and the development of a cold-cathode X-ray tube technology.

Here are the top 25 best performing articles on the Imaging Technology News (ITN) website from 2020. This is based on the analytics of ITN's record 3.2 million pagesviews in 2020.

COVID-19 was clearly the main interest on the minds of radiologists in 2020, with all but 3 articles below involving COVID. Many of these articles are from earlier in the year and during the first COVID wave that hit the U.S. when radiologists were scrambling to get access to any information regarding COVID imaging. ITN had more than 1.4 million pageviews just for COVID pandemic coverage.
