Cover image NMR in Biomedicine

The cover of the NMR in Biomedicine issue for May 2018 was designed by Mike van Rijssel, first author of the article ‘Estimating B1+ in the breast at 7T using a generic template’. This article, which was co-authored by Josien Pluim, Peter Luijten, Kenneth Gilhuijs, Alexander Raaijmakers and Dennis Klomp, describes a method which, using prior knowledge, can quickly characterize the scanner’s transmit power. This allows for the B1+ mapping (pre)scan to be omitted from the scanning protocol, which reduces the time patients have to spend inside the MRI machine.
