Swiss on top in ECR survey | Getting more hashtag savvy | Zoom out on breast tumors

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

When it comes to converting ECR talks into published articles, the Swiss rule supreme, followed by the Dutch, French, and Germans, although Asian presenters are improving fast.

These are the key findings of detailed new research unveiled by a U.K. group. The analysis reveals much about the well-being of academic radiology in these countries. For the full story, click here.

Radiologists are lagging behind other medical specialists in how they use social media, particularly Twitter, said the lead author of European research presented at this week's American College of Radiology annual congress in Washington, DC. Attach a picture, and a tweet of 140 characters "is worth a thousand words," the lead author reckons. Go to our Healthcare Informatics Community, or click here.

Over many years, a senior radiologist from the Netherlands suspected that individual breast screening radiologists missed tumors that could seemingly be detected from farther away. Now her colleagues have proved she was right all along. Find out more in our Women's Imaging Community, or by clicking here.

As part of a study looking at the diagnosis of osteoporosis and progression of rheumatoid arthritis, a creative German-Danish research team has taken a fresh look at the x-ray of a 78-year-old patient acquired by Conrad Röntgen on 23 January 1896.

Last but not least, U.K. researchers found cardiovascular MRI is a good alternative to SPECT for predicting patient outcome in terms of major adverse cardiac events. The findings add weight to the growing evidence base for cardiovascular MRI in the diagnosis and management of patients with suspected coronary heart disease, they believe. Get the details here.
