Dear MRI Insider,

Some patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) live with the condition for years without developing Alzheimer's disease, while others progress to this incurable and ultimately fatal condition. Are there any tools that can help clinicians predict which of their patients with MCI are at increased risk of Alzheimer's?

In this edition's Insider Exclusive, we're reporting on a pair of Turkish investigators who developed a computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) tool trained with MRI data to improve on the identification and tracking of MCI. Take a look at our story and read more about the research's implications.

Next, check out our coverage of the recent International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM) virtual meeting. Presenters at ISMRM 2020 explored everything from killer artificial intelligence (AI) apps for MRI to how running an MRI service is like captaining a ship. They also covered how thermal burns top the MRI adverse event list, how radiofrequency-induced heating puts patients with tattoos at risk, and how researchers are building better AI for breast MRI.

Are patients concerned about gadolinium retention? Canadian researchers analyzed more than 500 tweets made by patients to investigate the question -- and what they found may surprise you. When you've finished reading that story, take a look at what another group of researchers from Turkey concluded about using MRI as an alternative to CT for COVID-19 diagnosis. Finally, discover what presenters at the AHRA annual virtual meeting had to say about managing MRI risks.

MRI is a dynamic modality. We invite you to check our MRI Community often to get the latest news and research developments from around the world.
