Week in Review: Gadolinium debate ignites again | What's new in cardiovascular MRI? | Radiology loses AI champion

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

When assessing gadolinium deposition, have radiologists tended to concentrate too much on the brain and too little on skin? Have they been influenced too much by the so-called streetlight effect?

Leading investigator Prof. Dr. Alexander Radbruch from Bonn, Germany, thinks so. Radbruch's perspective looks certain to generate discussion and debate. Find out more in the MRI Community.

The virtual European Society of Cardiology congress wrapped up on Tuesday, and cardiovascular MRI research studies featured prominently among the imaging presentations. Don't miss our special report about the latest progress being made in sickle cell disease and heart transplantation.

Natalia Vukolova has achieved a great deal during her 11-year spell at the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists, particularly in the artificial intelligence (AI) arena, and is a well-known figure in Europe. Her resignation this week looks set to leave a gap in Australasian radiology. Go to the Artificial Intelligence Community to read more.

In other news, a team from Essen, Germany, has found that PET/MRI improves lesion detection for selected cancers and potentially reduces the need for additional examinations in comparison with PET/CT. Learn more in the Molecular Imaging Community.

Illicit drug use continues to rise, and it now represents a serious healthcare problem, according to radiologists from Mater Misericordiae University Hospital in Dublin. They've shared the main lessons they've learned from treating a growing number of patients, as well as some impressive clinical images.
