Week in Review: Rappers steal the show at JFR | 11.7T MRI of pumpkins | Beets-Tan on cancer imaging

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

It's been an extremely busy and significant week for radiology in France.

The French national congress, JFR, is one of medical imaging's big three meetings of the year, along with RSNA and ECR. Frances Rylands-Monk, the fluent French speaker on our team who lives in Brittany, has covered the event for us.

As you'll see from the impressive lineup below, there have been many highlights, but arguably the biggest surprise was the release of a new rap song. It's had over 4,000 views since 9 October and is an intriguing production with a novel approach.

On top of that, news broke from Paris that an 11.7-tesla MRI scanner has produced its first images. Don't miss our exclusive interview with Dr. Denis Le Bihan, PhD, the visionary founder of NeuroSpin, where the machine is located. He explains why they scanned a pumpkin and talks about the group's future plans and goals. Find out more in the MRI Community.

Taking place at the same time as JFR was the European Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and Biology (ESMRMB) virtual meeting, at which Prof. Dr. Regina Beets-Tan from Amsterdam gave a broad-ranging keynote lecture on oncologic imaging. As a past winner of the Most Effective Radiology Educator award in the EuroMinnies and president-elect of the European Society of Radiology, she's always worth listening to.

Away from the congress scene, an Italian survey highlighted patients' "substantial lack" of knowledge about medical radiation. The authors are convinced about the need for intervention to achieve better patient awareness of the risks. For the full story, go to the CT Community.

Finally, if you're fascinated by images of ancient mummies, take a look at this report from Germany, which includes some striking cases from Egypt and South America.
