Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,
Dr. László Tabár is one of those speakers you just have to listen to. He has strong opinions, abundant passion, and evangelical-like conviction. His lectures have entertained and captivated audiences for the past four decades.
Tabár held court at a special event in London last week and didn't disappoint. He shared his extensive and varied experiences of breast imaging. For our report, go to our Women's Imaging Community, or click here.
Dr. Adrian Dixon is another visionary and iconic figure in European radiology. He received honorary membership at the German radiology congress, which ended on Saturday. To mark the occasion, he spoke about his views on the profession, including radiology's turf battles and its failure to integrate with nuclear medicine. Get the story here.
While many of you will know both Tabár and Dixon, I suspect very few have ever heard of British urologist Dr. Edwin Hurry Fenwick. However, he's made a huge contribution to imaging, according to our history columnist Dr. Adrian Thomas. Go to our Digital X-Ray Community, or click here.
Speaking of x-ray, an important new musculoskeletal study was published online on Sunday by European Radiology. The German authors have taken a close look at acute scapholunate ligament tears, and given how common these injuries are, their analysis will be of great interest to both generalists and specialists.

Finally, MRI analysis of abdominal fat can give an indication of cardiovascular risk in overweight and obese people, and new protocols developed at a Leipzig obesity clinic in Germany can reduce this previously time-consuming task to a matter of minutes. To learn more, click here.
