Week in Review: French expert gives verdict on AI | U.K. team scoops top RSNA prize | Inquest into patient death hears of MRI delay

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

What does a senior radiologist who's seen it all before really think about artificial intelligence (AI)? Is the hype to be believed?

Dr. Philippe Grenier, a past ECR president and respected radiologist, has shared his views on the clinical impact of AI, and he's generally positive about the technology. Find out more in the Artificial Intelligence Community.

Cinematic rendering is well known as a postprocessing technique for 3D visualization of CT image data but slightly less so when it comes to MRI data. That's probably why the RSNA judges gave a top award to researchers who believe cinematic rendering comprises state-of-the-art postprocessing for MRI, providing superior resolution and image interrogation to all previous forms of volume rendering. Don't miss our news report in the MRI Community.

Meanwhile, a U.K. inquest has heard that a delay of at least two days due to a broken MRI machine might have contributed to the death of a 51-year-old man from sepsis. A string of failures prior to the patient's death seems to have occurred, including the lack of a checklist for cases of sepsis.

A dispute over MRI's role in breast screening is escalating in the Netherlands. The Health Council is against providing MRI screening to women with dense breasts because of the anxiety caused by a false-positive result and unnecessary follow-up diagnostic exams, but the Dutch Society of Radiology is convinced that the evidence confirms the efficacy of screening with MRI in women with dense breasts.

Finally, today (Friday) is the last day for nominations for the 2021 EuroMinnies award scheme, so please do get involved and complete our short survey form. We'll reveal the semifinalists on 17 December.
