Spanish scoop top research prizes | Grumpy old man rides again | Practical tips on deep learning

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

Winning one magna cum laude in the vast RSNA poster hall is a notable achievement, but winning two of them at the same meeting is an amazing feat.

A Spanish group did just that at RSNA 2018 in Chicago. Its two awards are even more remarkable because the researchers are not based in one of the larger cities and the lead author for both exhibits is only 37 years old. Don't miss our news report about their prize-winning work in the MRI Community.

Let's face it, we all need cheering up during January, so we thought you'd enjoy a witty video sketch recorded at ECR 2006. It features U.K. radiologist Dr. Paul Dubbins as the grumpy old man in Vienna, and it's certain to make you laugh.

What practical measures can help ensure success in machine learning? Austrian researchers have addressed this question, and they won a certificate of merit at RSNA 2018 for their efforts. We've posted an article about their prize-winning presentation. Go to the Imaging Informatics Community.

Artificial intelligence (AI) continues to divide opinion. An Italian team has predicted that AI will change radiology as much as x-ray did in 1895, but others warn that the hype may not live up to its promise. Against this background, industry expert Gene Saragnese has written a guest editorial on AI.

Prof. Didier Raoult, a specialist on tropical diseases, has launched a stinging attack on French radiology, but the profession has now struck back. What's all the fuss about? Find out more in this story.

Last but definitely not least, the safety of gadolinium-based contrast agents looks set to be a major issue throughout 2019. A German group has published new findings on this topic in Radiology.
