ESR Biomarker Inventory

We are pleased to inform you that the European Imaging Biomarkers Alliance (EIBALL) research committee of the European Society of Radiology (ESR) has just published a biomarkers inventory. Among different anatomical district biomarkers you will find renal ones, including ASL, BOLD, DWI, DTI, PC, T1-mapping, T2-mapping, which are based on our NDT special issue.

Further information will also be available in the upcoming MAGMA publications, which will be also promoted through our website and social media platforms.
