Life in Paris 4 months on; ECR attendance rises 2.5%; Beets-Tan's lecture tips

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

Radiologists and radiographers rallied around to great effect immediately after the Paris bombings in November, and their actions made a huge difference to patient care.

Experts have looked closely at how to strengthen the future ability to respond to any similar incidents, and a strategic plan has emerged.

We've gone back to interview senior radiologists who've been involved in the process. Find out more in our PACS Community, or by clicking here.
