Week in Review: Tributes flow in for Daniel Vanel | Dutch fear AI may increase radiology workload | Misdiagnosis leads to unnecessary mastectomy

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

French radiology is mourning the loss of two important figures: Daniel Vanel and Jean-Michel Tubiana.

For many years, Vanel was head of radiology at a top cancer institute near Paris, but his influence and recognition extended well beyond medical imaging. Don't miss our tribute article about him. We've also posted a report about Tubiana, who dedicated his life to the world-famous Saint Antoine Hospital's radiology department.

The widespread assumption is that artificial intelligence will reduce the workload of radiologists, but this might not actually be the case. The ever industrious Kwee brothers from the Netherlands have conducted a thought-provoking study in this area, and it deserves a close look.

News broke this week in the U.K. about the disturbing case of a nurse who was wrongly diagnosed as having breast cancer and who then had a mastectomy. How did it happen? Find out in the Women's Imaging Community.

Also in the U.K., concern is growing about the shortage of pediatric radiologists and its impact on the diagnosis of child abuse. Dr. Owen Arthurs, consultant pediatric radiologist at London's Great Ormond Street, and others have expressed their views.

Last but not least, we have information about research conducted at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden. As screening technology continues to improve, the detection of benign breast disease has increased -- making it all the more important that clinicians understand the factors that boost a woman's chances of developing these diseases, the study authors concluded.
