I think the more discerning MRI's that are coming into play are rapidly showing researchers that they've put too much faith into current and past images.
Yes, I agree with you that with the higher resolution, 7T, MRI's the images are going to show researchers (including the big pharmas) that what they have been saying about non-activity and inflammation is just not correct. This is upsetting because there are drug trials which are currently going on and they are using the 1.5T and their findings are going to be based on those images. And, those drugs may/ or may not make it to the market.
Also, Bob, just wanted to say that your posts are usually very well thought out ...I respect your opinions --agree with them sometime, not sure about others. They are always thought provoking --kind of a wakeup call. It is up to me to decide whether to go back to sleep or stay awake
You should have been a professor --sometimes putting bait out for the students to bite --sometimes having to reel them back in. Then there are those students who decide to not take the bait --that's okay too!
Have a great weekend!
