In April, WG1 and WG3 launched an invitation for all GliMR-members to collaborate with the preparation of one of our three reviews. With more than 40 contributors, this call was a huge success.
Most members chose the review on ‘Advanced MR techniques for glioma characterisation’ as first choice, followed by the review ‘MR Biomarkers for assessing the treatment follow-up’, and finally the review ‘Adverse effects of treatment on the healthy brain tissue’. All members were then contacted, and finally 28, 10 and 5 members signed up for the three reviews, respectively.
This questionnaire also provided some insights on the experience of the responding members. Regarding MRI-techniques, most members are experienced in diffusion, DSC/DCE, spectroscopy, CEST and radiomics, followed by ASL, fMRI and SWI. Additionally, a high experience was noted in the fields of neuro-oncology and clinical neuroradiology.
Currently, the development of the first review has started, while reviews two and three are still in preparation.
