MRI Insider

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

Let's be honest, we all love a lively, well-contested pros-and-cons-type debate that shines a light on a controversial topic of widespread interest.

In two commentaries posted this week by European Radiology, the authors take dramatically opposing views on the use of AI in prostate MRI. The result is an illuminating discussion, and you can read about it in today's top story.

Another AI-related article posted this week focuses on a new study from the Karolinska Institute in Sweden. The authors found that using an AI-based score to select a small proportion of women for supplemental MRI after negative mammography detected many missed cancers.

Patient safety remains an urgent priority for every MRI practitioner. U.K. researchers think an acronym may help to provide a simple way for all staff to remember best practices to prevent thermal injuries to patients undergoing an MRI scan.

In other news, Italian researchers have reported that MRI illuminates the structural and functional organization of the brain, helping clinicians predict the progression of Parkinson's disease in patients in its early stages.

Also, we've covered an important new analysis about how MRI shows women who have their ovaries removed before menopause have reduced white matter integrity in multiple regions of the brain later in life. Get the full details in our report.
