MAGMA Special Issue – Micro- to Macroscale Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Glioma

MAGMA Special Issue – Micro- to Macroscale Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Glioma


In Februari 2022, GliMR published a MAGMA Special Issue, entitled ‘Micro- to Macroscale Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Glioma’, which you can find here.

The aim of this special issue was to promote research that focuses on advancing MRI to improve glioma imaging diagnostics, including original research that either fall within or expand micro- to macroscale assessment of glioma pathophysiology, such as:

  • Technical development of advanced MRI for novel biomarkers of glioma
  • Rapid acquisition and reconstruction of MRI for multiparametric glioma assessment
  • Development of MRI post processing methods for improved glioma diagnostics, such as radiomics and big data analyses, including multi-centre data integration
  • Development and validation of novel imaging biomarkers for glioma treatment response and follow-up, including assessing efficacy of novel drugs or distinction of pseudoprogression from treatment effects

This Special Issue comprises 16 articles, many developed by our GliMR members. The issue includes two reviews on dynamic glucose enhanced MRI, advanced MRI for precise radiotherapy, and a systematic review on the use of advanced MRI to detect cancer therapy side effects. We would like to thank the guest editors Dr. Patricia Clement, Prof. Dr. Marion Smits, Prof. Dr. Matthias Van Osch, Prof. Dr. Bruno Costa, and Dr. Esther Warnert, and all our members who submitted their work.
