Strickland warns of radioisotope shortages | French molecular research | Gadolinium contrast update

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

It's just over a year since a slender majority of the U.K. electorate voted to leave the European Union, and the fallout of the Brexit vote is only now starting to become clear.

For the medical imaging community, serious shortages of radioisotopes appear likely if the U.K. withdraws from the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom) treaty. This week Dr. Nicola Strickland, president of the Royal College of Radiologists, issued a serious warning about the implications of this scenario for cancer patients. For our exclusive special report, go to the Molecular Imaging Community, or click here.

European speakers created a big impression at the recent Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging congress in the U.S. A French team was among those making the headlines at the meeting. Click here to get the details.

Despite new guidance from European regulators on the safety of gadolinium-based contrast agents, uncertainty looks set to continue for some time yet. For an update on the fast-changing situation, go to our MRI Community, or click here.

New research on digital breast tomosynthesis continues to emerge with great regularity. What's the latest development in this area? Find out in the Women's Imaging Community, or by clicking here.

Meanwhile, Spanish investigators have unveiled important new findings about 3D vascular ultrasound and detection of subclinical atherosclerosis. Click here for the full story.

Last but definitely not least, it's been a very sad few days for all of us at AuntMinnie.com and AuntMinnieEurope.com. Eric Barnes, who has been a key member of our editorial team since the launch of AuntMinnie.com in 1999, died last week. Eric loved reporting on European congresses, particularly ECR.
