Prediction of infarction development after endovascular stroke therapy with dual-energy computed tomography: Methodological issues

Dear Editor, I was interested to read the paper by Djurdjevic T and colleagues published in Eur Radiol 2017 Mar. After intraarterial recanalisation (IAR), haemorrhage and blood-brain barrier (BBB) disruption can be distinguished using dual-energy computed tomography...

Reply to: Stent-Retriever Thrombectomy for Acute Anterior Ischemic Stroke with Tandem Occlusion: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

Dear Editor, I read with interest the comment of the reader on my study: "I was well aware of this large series including 170 patients, reason why it was included in the discussion section (page 4). There was no mistake in the number of patients (Similar results were...

Are all questions about the safety of MRI contrast agent answered?

Dear Editor, Deposition of Gadolinium (Gd) in various organs and tissues from contrast MRIs has been consistently reported in animals and in humans. Although this is associated with all agents, the extent is much less with the macrocyclic Gd based-contrast agent (mGBCA). The conclusions from the study of Kromrey et al. [1] described in the key points are undifferentiated and one-sided - the complexity of Gd deposits is not observed.

Reply to: Small intestinal bowel gas and breath hydrogen after ingestion of lactulose

Dear Editor, We thank Dr. Uno for his interesting comment on our work. We also hypothesized that a longer examination time may yield very interesting results, as he correctly pointed out. However, there is the issue of keeping a patient stuck in a MR system for five...

Small intestinal bowel gas and breath hydrogen after ingestion of lactulose

Dear Editor, Study of Savarino et al prospectively evaluated orocaecal transit time (OCTT) by magnetic resonance imaging for 28 healthy volunteers [1]. In this study, image and lactulose hydrogen breath test (LHBT) was performed concurrently every 15 min up to 180...

Translations

As the family of radiologists is steadily growing, it is becoming more and more important for the community of experts to keep track of the exciting new research their colleagues conduct in other parts of the world.

Without doubt, English today is the lingua franca of science, but it is also true that a majority of scientists do not speak English as their mother tongue. Reading research articles in their mother tongue makes it easier for scientists to concentrate on the scientific message rather than on the foreign language.

Tenemos el placer de presentarles los resúmenes, puntos y palabras clave de los artículos publicados en European Radiology en español. Queremos ofrecer este servicio a la comunidad científica hispanohablante, y esperamos que les facilite la selección de artículos interesantes. Las traducciones se han realizado minuciosamente por radiólogos con excelentes conocimientos del español y el inglés, coordinadas y editadas por el Dr Antonio López Rueda (Murcia/ES).

We would like to thank the CSR for their cooperation and their excellent pioneering work in this field: The Chinese Society of Radiology (CSR): the abstracts of articles published in the printed issues of European Radiology are translated into Chinese (Mandarin). It is our pleasure to offer this service to the Chinese speaking radiology community, and to add to the high profile of these studies and case reports by making them more easily accessible.
