The symbol "&", known formally as an ampersand, is a widely used typographical symbol simply meaning "and". An example from radiology being "head & neck imaging".
On Radiopaedia, we have decided to favor the word "and" instead of the symbol, "&". We have decided to permit only a few rare exceptions to this preference:
- commercial names, e.g. Johnson & Johnson, AT&T, etc.
- H&E staining
- the use of the "&" symbol in references, which need to be reproduced verbatim
