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.

Computed tomography image quality of aortic stents in patients with aortic coarctation: a multicentre evaluation

The aim of this study was to evaluate the post-implantation computed tomography (CT) image quality of different types of stents that are used to treat aortic coarctation. By subjectively scoring CT scans for image quality and measuring the amount of stent-induced...

Feasibility of 7-T fluorine magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging (19F MRSI) for TAS-102 metabolite detection in the liver of patients with metastatic colorectal cancer

This pioneering study aimed to investigate the potential of 7-T 19F-MRS to detect TAS-102 metabolites in humans. The authors set out to prove that TAS-102 cannot be detected in liver metastases of metastatic colorectal cancer patients on a normal treatment schedule,...

Rationale and design of a prospective study on the first integrated PET/dual-energy CT system for staging and image-based radiation therapy planning of lung cancer

This prospective study was designed to examine the diagnostic performance of integrated positron emission tomography and dual-energy computed tomography imaging in determining the thoracic nodal status of patients with small-cell lung cancer or non-small-cell lung...

Effect of thyroid shielding during mammography: measurements on phantom and patient as well as estimation with Monte Carlo simulation

The exposure of thyroid to scattered radiation from breast tissue during mammography may increase the risk of radiation- induced thyroid cancer. The aim of the study was to use Monte Carlo simulation to investigate the scatter radiation exposition of the thyroid and...

Cord cross-sectional area at foramen magnum as a correlate of disability in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis

Due to the fact that spinal cord atrophy is not routinely assessed in routine clinical practice, despite being one of the hallmarks of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, this study was designed to evaluate whether spinal cord cross-sectional area measured at the foramen...
