Get MR relaxation times right; global teleradiology papers; meet the real Marie Curie

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

T1 and T2 relaxation times are integral to the optimum use of MRI, yet they are proving to be controversial, it seems.

Who better than the Maverinck -- Dr. Peter Rinck, PhD -- to shed some light on this tricky topic? He has had extensive experience of MRI over many years, and his latest column makes fascinating reading. Go to our Cardiac Imaging Community, or click here.

During the past 18 months, both the European Society of Radiology and the American College of Radiology have published important white papers on teleradiology, and a well-respected group of authors have compared and contrasted these documents. To get their analysis, go our PACS Community, or click here.

Sometimes Marie Curie is portrayed as a dry and austere scientist, but in reality she was a very different person, insists history columnist Dr. Adrian Thomas. He's keen for everybody to find out more about Marie Curie, and you can start doing so by clicking here.

The horrific cases of nephrogenic systemic fibrosis caused by intravenous gadolinium administration were first identified nearly a decade ago, and they served to focus attention on the safety of contrast media. Against this background, the U.K. Royal College of Radiologists' new recommendations on the use of intravascular contrast agents are bound to attract considerable attention. Get the story here.

The long-running pay dispute involving radiographers in England came to an end yesterday, when the results of a recent ballot were announced. Click here to learn more.

Last but not least, the ECR begins in Vienna next week, and our editorial team will be reporting live from the meeting. Make sure you check the home page for our unrivalled coverage.
