Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,
The debate over the safety of gadolinium-based contrast agents for MRI resurfaced in spectacular style during 2015, so it's no surprise to see two articles on this topic featured among our list of top 10 articles for this year.
Other topics that clearly appealed to you were how to conduct research on love-making in an MRI scanner, injuries caused to patients, errors by locum radiologists, free apps for your smartphone, how to reduce children's anxiety over imaging, the prospect of 20-tesla human MRI, and new data on the value of breast screening.
The full list of the most popular articles published by AuntMinnieEurope.com during the past 12 months -- as measured by the total number of page views -- is given below. To access the relevant article, please click on the title:
