Breast screening debate intensifies | Update on radiographer reporting | 3D printing advances

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

Breast cancer screening is rarely out of the headlines these days, but the ongoing debate over its pros and cons has become particularly fierce since news broke last week about the missed invitations for 450,000 women in England.

Firstly, the opponents of screening seized on the initiative by renewing their calls for screening to be abolished. Now Dr. László Tabár -- never a shrinking violet -- has entered the fray. To find out his take on the situation in the U.K., go to our Women's Imaging Community, or click here.

Radiographer reporting is another topic that's guaranteed to set the pulse racing. A new study about reading chest x-ray was published on 30 April, and the findings are worth a close look. You can do so here.

A sprain or tear to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is a common knee injury, and techniques for repairing the injury are continuously being refined, if not replaced. Examining 3D-printed models of the knee, Italian researchers have measured key structures and estimated graft length for ACL surgery. Find out how accurate these calculations were compared with standard measurements on multiplanar reconstruction MRI scans in the Advanced Visualization Community, or by clicking here.

The lifelike quality of MRI and CT scans reconstructed with cinematic rendering can help clarify complex anatomy, but what will it take to integrate the technique into routine clinical practice? Discover what experts in the field had to say in a British Institute of Radiology (BIR) podcast.

The popularity of postmortem imaging continues to grow as a viable alternative to conventional autopsy alone. The Swiss are doing much of the ground-breaking research in this field, and you can learn about their latest findings in our CT Community, or by clicking here.

The German national radiology congress, RöKo 2018, opened its doors in Leipzig today. From tomorrow, we'll have news stories from the meeting so make sure you check the homepage for our coverage.
