The Minister of Education and Science of Poland, Prof. Przemysław Czarnek, honoured the LPI member Dr Tomasz Pieciak with a departmental distinction for "outstanding contribution to education and upbringing". This award summarises ten years of remarkable assistance to his students and apprentices, including exceptional theses written under his supervision, national and international achievements and popularizing science among young people.

The free-water volume fraction has recently gained tremendous interest in research and clinical communities as it brings information about the cerebrospinal and interstitial fluids in the extracellular space of the white matter of the brain and thus correlates with cognitive performance and various neuropathological processes.
The LPI, in collaboration with the Headache Unit of Hospital Clínico Universitario de Valladolid, has assessed structural gray matter and white matter changes in patients with persistent headache after the acute phase of COVID-19 in comparison with healthy controls and patients with episodic migraine (EM) and chronic migraine (CM).
Artificial Intelligence has enabled two pre-doctoral researchers at the University of Valladolid, Rafael Navarro and Elisa Moya, to generate synthetic images that can be used in combination with those adquired in an MRI scaner in a radiomic system for survival prediction of patients with glioblastoma.
The LPi is organizing an official Challenge inside MICCAI 2022: "Quality augmentation in diffusion MRI for clinical studies: Validation in migraine" (QuaD22). The challenge seeks to answer the question: “Are we losing relevant quantitative clinical information when generating high-quality images with artificial intelligence techniques?” More information in the official webpage [here]
