Dear AuntMinnieEurope MRI Insider,
One of the ways multiple sclerosis (MS) manifests is as white-matter lesions in the brain, which are associated with a loss of myelin.
In a five-center study, Swiss investigators have evaluated the accuracy of software for detecting new and enlarging white-matter lesions in MS patients. Their findings deserve a close look in our article posted today in the MRI Community.
How exactly can pelvic MRI be used to diagnose deep infiltrating endometriosis? How does the technique compare with transvaginal ultrasound? A research group from Pierre and Marie Curie University in Paris has addressed this question in a recent peer-reviewed publication.
When it comes to abdominal MRI, Prof. Luis Martí-Bonmatí from Valencia, Spain, is a recognized expert, so it's reassuring to know that he's closely involved in the European Federation for Cancer Images, a four-year project that aims to enhance the use of imaging and artificial intelligence technology for precision medicine in cancer patients.
In other news, Dr. Nathalie Hottat, a clinical radiologist at Burgmann University Hospital in Brussels, Belgium, and her colleagues have reported that diffusion-weighted MRI can help predict breast cancer patients' response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy.
The application of MR spectroscopy continues to be a promising area of advancement in brain tumor management, with significant benefits in the context of different physiological imaging techniques, according to researchers from Ireland.
