Week in Review: Renal complications | EDiR adapts to COVID-19 | Pandemic stress

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

The rising incidence of renal pathologies also means a growing incidence of complications from renal interventional procedures, according to the story that was the most-viewed article on AuntMinnieEurope.com this past week.

A group from Australia discussed the role of radiologists in detecting possible complications from renal interventions, especially with the growing shift to less invasive procedures. Multiple imaging modalities can help, including CT, MRI, and digital subtraction angiography.

In addition to causing tragic loss of life over the past year, the COVID-19 pandemic has upended society in myriad ways. For example, many radiologist board certification exams had to be postponed and rescheduled -- including the European Diploma in Radiology (EDiR). In a new article, Prof. Laura Oleaga of the European Board of Radiology (EBR) discussed how the EBR has adapted.

The pandemic has also caused anxiety and workplace-related stress among radiographers, according to a new study out of the U.K. Established working patterns and workloads have changed, with many radiographers not receiving the training they need to care for patients with COVID-19.

In other news, Swiss researchers found a unique sign on radiography indicating a painful foot neuroma -- a V-shaped sign that they named after the character Mr. Spock from "Star Trek." And cardiac imaging research in Spain is set to get a big boost thanks to a new scholarship program.
