Week in review: MRI and superagers | Cloud-based image management | Minnies nominations

Dear AuntMinnie Member,

How do some people maintain their memory function into their 80s? Thanks to MRI and a machine-learning algorithm, researchers believe they may have an answer.

A study involving 64 so-called "superagers" found more gray matter in areas of the brain controlling memory and movement, suggesting that their brains are less affected by age-related cognitive decline. What else did the authors discover? Find out in this week's most highly viewed article.

Meanwhile, gadopiclenol has emerged over the last year as a viable lower-dose MRI contrast alternative to other gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs), as evidenced by a new study that compared the new macrocyclic agent with gadobutrol on body MRI exams. The researchers reported that gadopiclenol at half the dose of gadobutrol was just as effective for lesion evaluation.

But those two stories weren't the only popular articles this week in our MRI Community. You can also learn about new research describing findings on MRI in newborns who suffer seizures within a few days of birth.

Cloud-based image management

Implementing a cloud-based enterprise imaging initiative can be a complex endeavor. In his latest "The PACSman Pontificates" column, imaging industry consultant Michael J. Cannavo discusses all of the issues that facilities need to be aware of when considering a cloud deployment.

In other news in our Enterprise Imaging Community, find out how an online elective course was able to effectively educate radiology students on the concept of appropriateness in imaging.

Minnies nominations

Nominations have been pouring in for the Minnies, our annual awards recognizing excellence in radiology. Have you submitted your nominations yet for the 15 Minnies categories?
