  • Erica E. Mason, PhD, and Lawrence L. Wald, PhD, of the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, and colleagues are exploring magnetic particle imaging as a fast way to assess margin status during breast-conserving surgery, with the aim of reducing the need for a second surgery.

  • This feasibility study is the first to show that patients with deep brain stimulation devices—even those with bilateral leads or a fully implanted system—might safely undergo MRI at 3T. It also demonstrates in one patient that better surgical management of the extracranial portions of bilateral leads mitigates risk.
