But what impact does this have on the brain? Learn more in our report.

Many of you will know Prof. Bettina Baessler, who was voted Most Effective Radiology Educator in the 2022 EuroMinnies awards. She gave a keynote talk about MRI radiomics on 3 June in Toronto, and it was well received.

An Italian investigation into how to cut MRI contrast residuals in hospital wastewater also caught our attention at ISMRM 2023. You can find out more in this article written by Kate Madden Yee, one of our three editors onsite.
