Welcome!

The European Society of Radiology has expanded its journal family: the new journal European Radiology EXPERIMENTAL will provide a forum for basic scientific discoveries, novel approaches and techniques in experimental settings, as an addition to the clinically relevant research published in European Radiology, and to the educational articles in Insights into Imaging.

European Radiology EXPERIMENTAL is an online gold open access journal, all articles are freely available on our publisher’s portal SpringerOpen.

MRI assessment of altered dynamic changes in liver haemodynamics following a meal challenge in compensated cirrhosis

The aim of this study was to use MRI for dynamically assessing postprandial changes in hepatic and collateral blood flow, liver perfusion and oxygenation in healthy participants and patients with liver disease with compensated cirrhosis. The authors were able to...

Estimated intracranial volume from FreeSurfer is biased by total brain volume

Since estimated intracranial volume (eTIV) from FreeSurfer is calculated from the alignment of the input MR images to the MNI305 brain atlas, and is not segmentation-based, a concern was raised that this might lead to a bias by total brain volume. This study managed...

Respiratory level tracking with visual biofeedback for consistent breath-hold level with potential application in image-guided interventions

This study aimed to present and evaluate a new respiratory level biofeedback system that helps the patient to have a consistent breath-hold level. The results showed an increased reproducibility of breath-hold expiration level in healthy volunteers, indicating a...

Splenectomy for hypersplenism with or without preoperative splenic artery embolisation

Due to the fact that intraoperative blood loss is a common occurrence in splenectomy, the authors set out to compare the perioperative and clinical outcomes of splenic artery embolisation (SAE) prior to splenectomy versus splenectomy alone. On a total of 100 patients,...

Dual-layer spectral computed tomography: measuring relative electron density

The goal of this study was to examine the feasibility and accuracy of a novel dual-energy CT technique in measuring the electron density. By using dual-layer CT (DLCT), the authors investigated two approaches to obtain relative electron densities. The results showed...
