      Transfusion-Related Iron Overload in Patients with Transfusion- Dependent Anemias “Detection of myocardial fibrosis in patients with iron overload would allow for improved prognostication and risk stratification. Elucidation of the relationship between myocardial fibrosis and myocardial iron deposition as well as cardiac functional parameters would provide valuable mechanistic insights and improved pathophysiological understanding of the disease. The results of the proposed study have the potential to significantly impact patient management including recommendations for earlier or more aggressive chelation therapy based on changes in ECV values.”

      2013 Grant Funding Passes $3 Million Mark

      Earlier this spring, the RSNA R&E Foundation Board of Trustees, chaired by James P. Borgstede, M.D., approved an all-time high funding level for its 2013 research and education grant awards. “This year we are providing more than $3 million in grant funding for 83 research and education projects, both records for the Foundation. As the chair of the R&E Foundation Board of Trustees, I thank all of our generous donors for funding these bold and inspiring investigators and educators and their projects,” said Dr. Borgstede. This year’s recipients hail from 40 institutions and are performing research in a number of different subspecialty areas using a variety of modalities and techniques. Their promising projects have clinical and translational implications that will most certainly move our specialty forward. See RSNA.org/Foundation for a complete listing of the projects funded by R&E donors.
