CT plays an essential role in the detailed assessment of renal tumors, and given the complexity and increasing frequency of these cases, you won't want to miss top, prize-winning Spanish research on this topic.

In recognition of their work, Dr. Miguel Ángel Corral de la Calle and colleagues from Ávila received one of only two prestigious magna cum laude awards handed out by judges at ECR 2016. To get the full details, click here.

At the inaugural European Games last year in Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, CT examinations were performed offsite, but linked via a custom-built RIS/PACS. Detailed information about the use of imaging in Baku was presented at ECR 2016, and no doubt the data will be studied closely by the organizers of this summer's Rio Olympics.

Double reading remains a controversial issue in Europe, and opinions vary about its viability. Norwegian researchers have just published a study of 1,071 double-read abdominal CT exams. Their findings are worth a close look, and you can learn about them here.

Last but not least, dose-monitoring software is an emerging field, and considerable advances are being made. A Swiss group has assessed the technology's potential contribution to CT optimization. To find out more, click here.
