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.

Shear wave imaging detects endoleaks after aortic repair

The authors used an animal model to evaluate residual endoleak and thrombus organisation with shear wave imaging after endoleak embolisation. Using eight dogs with 16 iliac aneurysms and type I endoleak after endovascular aneurysm repair, the authors concluded that...

MRI-derived carotid maps may support early management of atherosclerosis

The goal of this study was to determine whether patient-specific and cohort-averaged wall thickness, wall shear stress, and vessel diameter maps can be used for creating 3D estimation models for patient-specific wall thickness in asymptomatic atherosclerotic carotid...

Impact of fixation, coil, and number of excitations on diffusion tensor imaging of rat brains at 7.0 T

The authors of this study set out to compare diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) parameters in vivo and ex vivo in the brain and to explore the effects of radiofrequency coil and number of excitations on ex vivo DTI parameters. By obtaining DTI maps from rat brains and...

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...
