Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,
Judging by this week's mailbox, many of you loved the radiology cartoons we posted on 25 March in Dr. Adrian Brady's review of the new book by our columnist Dr. Paul McCoubrie. It's been a long, hard winter across Europe, so clearly you appreciated some light relief.
In the run-up to the Easter break, we thought you'd enjoy seeing seven more cartoons from this book. My own favorite is the second one ("Not all patients are stoical"), but the final cartoon ("Enter the consultant surgeon") is also clever and witty.
On a more serious note, an important Swedish paper was published on 29 March. A group from Lund found that fetal cardiovascular MRI provides clinically useful information about congenital heart defects when echocardiography results are inconclusive, changing treatment/management plans in more than 80% of cases. Find out more in the MRI Community.
Meanwhile, a standout session at ECR 2021 was on CT evaluation of lung parenchyma. Don't miss our report, which includes coverage of a timely presentation by Prof. Peter Beddy from St. James' and Beacon Hospitals in Dublin. Learn more in the CT Community.
Anybody who's met Dr. Giles Maskell will know he's extremely mild-mannered and soft-spoken. I can't imagine him ever losing his temper or getting angry, but that's exactly what he's written about in a new column.
Last but not least, a team headed by informatics expert and AuntMinnieEurope.com editorial advisory board member Dr. Neelam Dugar has produced new standards a radiology department must meet when integrating artificial intelligence into an established PACS or RIS. Best of all, you can download the 10-page document for free from the U.K. Royal College of Radiologists' website.
