10 things to know about ECR 2019's president | U.K. issues new PACS advice | Europe's survey of interventional radiology

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

You may know the ECR 2019 president has 45 years of experience in ultrasound and has fostered links with Asian radiology. But did you know he used to play guitar in a rock band and is a Sherlock Holmes aficionado?

Probably not, which is why you should read today's article on Dr. Lorenzo Derchi. He speaks openly about his department in Genoa, Italy, as well as his views on radiology as a career, training, and his hobbies and interests. Go to the MRI Community.

The U.K. Royal College of Radiologists has updated its guidelines on the calibration and required resolution for imaging display devices. The new document includes mobile devices for the first time and contains seven practical recommendations. Visit the Imaging Informatics Community.

The fast-changing field of interventional radiology continues to evolve and break fresh ground, so the results of a comprehensive survey by the European Society of Radiology and the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe are bound to attract huge interest.

Mammography recall is a vitally important area, but there's been relatively little investigation into optimal recall rates. For this reason, an analysis of more than 11 million breast screening examinations from the English National Health Service program is worth a close look. Make sure you check out the authors' findings in our Women's Imaging Community.

Swift progress continues to be made in the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in women's imaging. An international group of investigators has developed an AI algorithm capable of predicting the survival rate of patients with ovarian cancer by analyzing their contrast-enhanced CT scans.

Also, an international research team has highlighted that 3D printing is emerging as a key technology in the management of ear, nose, and throat conditions. The group is convinced that the growing demand for 3D printing will bolster collaboration between radiologists and otolaryngologists.

ECR 2019 begins next Wednesday, and we very much look forward to bringing you news coverage direct from Vienna. For details, keep an eye on the AuntMinnieEurope.com home page.
