Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,
It's always big news when Prof. Dr. Christiane Kuhl, PhD, publishes the findings of a research project, so it's no surprise to see that our coverage of her latest study on contrast use in MRI is this week's top story.
Significantly, she's convinced that gadopiclenol is the ideal contrast agent for healthy people requiring repetitive contrast agent injections, including women with extremely dense breast tissue who undergo MRI for screening. Find out more in our Women's Imaging Community.
Another study that has captured our attention is an award-winning collaboration on diffusion MRI between two well-respected groups in Switzerland and the U.K. The lead author thinks the study has significant implications for general radiologists, especially neuroradiologists. Head over now to the MRI Community for the full story.
Life expectancy in Spain is nearly 86 years -- the highest in Europe and the fourth highest worldwide. Analysis from Madrid suggests that the brains of so-called SuperAgers are less affected by the cognitive decline that tends to manifest as people age. Also, they are more likely to have greater movement speed and lower rates of anxiety and depression.
Many experts believe one of the best ways to avoid burnout is to have a full and busy life outside of radiology, and Prof. Erik Ranschaert, PhD, is a fine example of this approach. He's keeping extremely busy over the summer, getting ready for climbing Mount Kenya on a charity expedition. I'm sure he'd really value your support.
