German team makes progress in localizing anatomical ROIs
August 14, 2020 -- German researchers have developed a method designed to accurately and robustly localize anatomical regions of interest (ROIs) for 3D medical data. They have presented their findings at the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine virtual conference.  Discuss
Thermal burns account for 60% of MRI adverse events
August 13, 2020 -- Ten years of MRI adverse event reports show burns from coils and electrocardiography leads during scans are among the most common -- and preventable -- causes for patient injuries, according to a large study presented on Thursday at the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine meeting.  Discuss
Stay alert to MRI's thermal effects, Italians warn
August 13, 2020 -- Italian researchers have urged imaging professionals to keep aware of the thermal effects of MRI due to the switching of gradient coil fields in scans on patients with metallic hip implants. They have presented their analysis at the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine virtual conference.  Discuss
U.K. trial shows earlier breast screening has benefit
August 12, 2020 -- New findings from a large randomized breast screening trial in the U.K. show that there is a mortality benefit if screening starts when women are in their 40s. But that benefit seems to fade over time, according to a study published on 12 August in the Lancet Oncology.  Discuss
Attention focuses on green credentials of congresses
August 12, 2020 -- Sydney would have been an environmentally suboptimal location for the annual International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine meeting, as measured by calculations of carbon dioxide emissions, according to new German analysis.
Tattoos and MRI: RF-induced heating may pose risk
August 11, 2020 -- The permanent tattoos of patients represent an important potential safety hazard during MRI, and the shape of the tattoo is the major factor in increasing the radiofrequency (RF) heating effects, researchers are reporting at the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine virtual conference.  Discuss
Curiosity and teamwork can bring career success
August 11, 2020 -- Be curious, follow your passion, dare to be different, listen to criticism, and work in teams, delegates were told in Sunday's keynote lecture on MRI and pediatric brain development at the ISMRM & SMRT Virtual Conference & Exhibition.  Discuss
Can AI lower radiologists' mammography workload?
August 10, 2020 -- Artificial intelligence (AI)-based software can reliably categorize a significant percentage of negative screening mammograms as normal, potentially decreasing mammography reading workload for radiologists by more than half, according to two presentations made at the recent ECR 2020 virtual meeting.  Discuss
Implantable hearing devices cause MRI safety concerns
August 10, 2020 -- Several hundred adverse events during MRI scans of patients with implantable hearing devices have occurred in the past decade, particularly in patients with cochlear implants, Belgian researchers are reporting at this week's International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine virtual conference.  Discuss
