Week in Review: New COVID-19 work from King's College | 18-hour trek for cancer therapy | How AI can reduce stress

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

The medical imaging community appears to have shown great courage, togetherness, and spirit during the pandemic, and this positivity is particularly striking in the first photo of this week's top story about new COVID-19 research. The genuine smiles of the interventional neuroradiology team at London's King's College Hospital are shining through the masks and visors.

The King's team certainly has much to smile about right now. They've just completed an important study about the potential of ground-glass opacification as a useful imaging biomarker in suspected stroke cases. Learn more in the CT Community.

Another fine example of imaging's determination to keep going is the work of the cancer care group at the BP Koirala Memorial Cancer Hospital in Nepal. Don't miss the uplifting blog written by an Italian-trained radiation oncology physicist.

On the flip side, the pandemic is bound to take its toll this year, particularly given the likelihood of a second wave of COVID-19 cases. At the AuntMinnie.com Fall 2020 Virtual Conference, the highly respected informatics expert Dr. Eliot Siegel spoke about the dangers of fatigue, stress, and burnout, as well as how artificial intelligence can assist in addressing these problems. Go to the Artificial Intelligence Community for more on this story, and check on our homepage for part 2 of our coverage of his keynote lecture.

How much do you know about the early days of CT? Radiology historian Dr. Adrian Thomas did an internship at EMI Medical in the early 1970s, and he's an authority on the origins of the modality. He tells the story is his column posted in the CT Community.

Finally, German researchers have created a novel type of silicon-based ultrasound detector technology that is 10,000 times smaller than the piezoelectric crystal transducers currently used for clinical sonography. Read our full report on the new development.
