Week in Review: Radbruch gives update on gadolinium safety | Italian team uses AI to assess COVID-19 risk | MRI sheds light on long COVID

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

Prof. Dr. Alex Radbruch is one of relatively few European radiologists who also has a law degree. This background must help when it comes to the study of gadolinium contrast agents for MRI, given the need to understand the medicolegal and regulatory aspects.

Radbruch, who is an active member of our website's Editorial Advisory Board, gave an update on gadolinium retention in the brain at the recent International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine annual meeting. Find out more about this week's top story in the MRI Community.

In other news, an Italian group has trained deep-learning models to automatically score and provide semantic segmentations of lung ultrasound exams in COVID-19 patients. In testing, the algorithms yielded a high level of agreement with lung ultrasound experts for stratifying patients as having either low or high risk of clinical worsening.

The University College of London is known for its cutting-edge research, and a hot topic at the facility's Institute of Neurology is the impact of long COVID on the brain. Prof. Claudia Wheeler-Kingshott, professor of MR physics, has reported novel findings in this area.

Meanwhile, the Health Service Executive in Ireland says it's gradually getting to grips with restoring normal service after last month's cyberattack, but it admits that substantial challenges still exist. Get the latest in the Enterprise Imaging Community.

Pediatric stroke often goes undiagnosed, according to Dr. Yolanda Ruiz Martín from Madrid. Don't miss our news report about her clinical experiences, which she shared at the Spanish Society of Medical Radiology annual congress.

Looking ahead, the U.K. Imaging and Oncology congress begins virtually on Monday. Our editorial team will cover the event, so check back on the homepage for regular updates.
