How to make yourself famous; the art of x-ray; Guerbet's growth bid

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

Chances are achieving fame isn't one of the reasons you picked radiology as a medical specialty. But our always-engaging columnist Dr. Paul McCoubrie has some provocative thoughts on what he sees as the connection between fame and radiology.

While most radiologists probably don't have a burning desire to be the next Kim Kardashian, every radiologist would like to contribute something of worth to humanity, Dr. McCoubrie believes. He thinks this is a goal many radiologists can achieve; find out how by clicking here.

Meanwhile, the artist-in-residence at the British Institute of Radiology, Hugh Turvey, is becoming well-known for his fascinating works of art based on radiography images. Find out why he prefers analog -- and never works with digital -- by clicking here.

While we're on the topic of radiography, give a look at this story that highlights what some U.K. radiologists believe is a growing problem -- the excessive use of abdominal radiography.

Major news in the contrast industry broke on Monday with the announcement that French contrast developer Guerbet was making a bid to buy U.S. firm Mallinckrodt. The deal will improve Guerbet's international distribution network, in particular access to the lucrative U.S. market. Learn more by clicking here.

Other articles we're highlighting include a new study that rebuts critics of mammography screening, as well as research in which functional MRI was used to learn about the neurobiological processes behind the placebo effect.
