Week in Review: Who's made the finals in the EuroMinnies? | A radiologist's life in Tanzania | Fertility-sparing in gynecological cancer

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

The EuroMinnies has quickly established itself as a popular feature of this website, and this week we announced the finalists for the 2021 award scheme. Whereas women dominated last year's edition, the gender split is much more even this time around. We'll reveal the winners later in February.

Have you ever wondered what it's like being a radiologist in sub-Saharan Africa? Dr. Lulu Sakafu from Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, has outlined the range of challenges she faces on a day-to-day basis. Her insight is fascinating, and her team received a certificate of merit at RSNA 2020 for their work. Go to the Women's Imaging Community to read more.

Many women who have the three most common gynecological malignancies -- cervical, endometrial, and ovarian -- are under the age of 40, so it's vital to select the most appropriate candidates for fertility-sparing treatment. Spanish experts from a leading facility have described how they use MRI in this area, and they've provided three educational cases.

Meanwhile, Dutch investigators have highlighted the continued risk of dose-related cancer and the urgent need for radiation tracking. They studied over 100,000 CT examinations performed on nearly 50,000 patients. Of these patients, nearly 1% received a high cumulative radiation dose. You can find out the full story by going to our CT Community.

Prof. Natalia Rotaru, PhD, a well-respected breast radiologist from Moldova, tragically died in late 2020 at the age of 57. She contracted COVID-19 while performing her clinical duties, and we've posted a tribute to her. It's so important to remember courageous and dedicated individuals like Natalia Rotaru.
