Week in Review: Spotlight falls on MRI infection control | Neurological signs of COVID-19 | Gadolinium trends in France

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

Much has been said and written about CT COVID-19 infection control over recent months, but relatively little advice has been issued about MRI -- even though some of the key issues involved in the two modalities are quite different.

To correct the imbalance and promote discussion in this area, we've posted a new article about how to keep MRI suites clean and safe. Three MRI specialists have shared their experiences and given us their opinions. Learn more in our MRI Community.

An important study was published this week about the neurological manifestations of severe SARS-CoV-2 infection. Researchers from University College London have evaluated the clinical, radiological, laboratory, and neuropathological findings from COVID-19 patients referred to them between 9 April and 15 May. Don't miss our news report.

Radiologists need to remain mindful of gadolinium's footprint and keep aware of the guidelines and evidence on gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs), according to French investigators. Their analysis of the main trends in GBCA usage deserves a close look.

A movie about the life and work of Marie Curie was launched last month. Called "Radioactive," it was directed by Marjane Satrapi, the Iranian-born French author and illustrator, and Dr. Adrian Thomas has reviewed it for you.

ECR Online begins on 15 July, and in a new column, the Maverink has expressed a personal view about the event, its prospects of success, and the future of large conferences. Our editorial team will be posting news stories throughout the congress.

Also, this week we've added some new abdominal questions to AuntMinnieEurope.com's Board Review. They were written by Prof. Dr. Mustafa Secil from Izmir, Turkey. Please do check them out on our free study tool supported by the European Board of Radiology (EBR). On Tuesday, we'll post a video interview with Prof. Laura Oleaga, EBR's scientific director.
