Week in Review: Imaging unlocks secrets of the deep | Is cardiac screening worth it? | Higher MRI field strengths

Dear AuntMinnie Member,

Medical imaging is a great tool for learning about the secrets of the human body. But what about the secrets of the deepest ocean?

It's good for that as well, at least based on one of the more unique studies we've had the pleasure of covering recently. Researchers from Denmark used CT to scan one of the world's rarest fishes, the coelacanth, hoping to learn more about the life and habits of this elusive denizen of the deep. Discover what they found in an article in our CT Community.

While you're there, check out our coverage from the recently concluded European Society of Cardiology (ESC) congress in Barcelona, where another Danish group reported on their experiences with a population-based cardiac screening program that included CT. You might be surprised at their conclusions.

The Danes were remarkably productive this past week, also producing studies on the value of PET for neuroendocrine tumors, as well as another study presented at ESC 2022 on the use of myocardial perfusion imaging tests in patients suspected of having coronary artery disease.

Is it worth pursuing clinical MRI at field strengths higher than 7 tesla? That's the tantalizing question we posed to Prof. Thoralf Niendorf, PhD, a world-renowned expert on ultrahigh-field imaging. Learn his opinions in this Q&A article in our MRI Community.
