In the Spring a fuller crimson comes upon the robin's breast;From "Locksley Hall" by Alfred, Lord Tennyson
In the Spring the wanton lapwing gets himself another crest;
In the Spring a livelier iris changes on the burnish'd dove;
In the Spring a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love.
Despite what Lord Tennyson tells us, in the spring, many a young person's thoughts turn to basketball, specifically college basketball play-offs, a.k.a. March Madness. Brackets selected, money wagered, surprise upsets featured in headlines. Since I couldn't possibly compete with that in the month of March, I bring you April Madness, in which JACR readers choose between bracket pairs of most read, most cited, and ScienceDirect top 25 JACR articles, until one article emerges as the group favorite.
With so many great JACR articles to pick from, it was no small feat to narrow the crowd down to a manageable eight . (Yes, only eight to start. I've no intention to blog about bracket updates all month.) Vote for your first-round choices below. Then return each day this week to see the previous day's winners and vote in the next round. The overall winner will be posted Monday.
Let's get started! In each of the brackets below, check out the articles and vote for the one you find most valuable. Check back to vote on the next round's picks. At the end of the week, we'll see which article reigns supreme!
Group A = Incidentals
Group B = Reducing Radiation and Inappropriate Imaging

C-1. Breast Cancer Screening With Imaging: Recommendations From the Society of Breast Imaging and the ACR on the Use of Mammography, Breast MRI, Breast Ultrasound, and Other Technologies for the Detection of Clinically Occult Breast Cancer
