Week in Review: Wise words on errors | Top 10 articles for 2021 | It's time to think about the spleen

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

Errors are an inevitable consequence of the need to provide complicated healthcare to ill, frail people -- and because of its complexity, radiology is a particularly risky business.

So writes Dr. Chris Hammond in a compelling new column. He urges us to accept that errors are going to happen and then think through how best to approach and handle the whole process. These wise words are based on years of clinical experience, and they are surely worth consideration as 2021 draws to a close.

At this time of year, we always enjoy presenting you with our list of the 10 most popular articles. There are certainly some surprises this time around, including pumpkins, buttock fillers, and Indian celebrity radiologists. Less surprisingly, Dr. Christiane Kuhl, long-COVID, cybersecurity, and coroner's reports also feature.

If we were to produce a list of the 10 most remarkable organs of the human body, the spleen is unlikely to appear. But this "forgotten organ" deserves attention, says the U.K. Royal College of Radiologists, which has issued new guidelines on imaging of the spleen.

Meanwhile, our regular market columnist Steve Holloway and his colleagues have reflected on their recent trip to Chicago. Don't miss their report on RSNA 2021.

We also bring you a story from Hong Kong, where researchers are excited about the promise of a prototype low-cost, low-field MRI scanner. Find out more in the MRI Community.

All that remains is for me to wish everybody an extremely happy holiday period on behalf of the whole AuntMinnieEurope.com team. Many thanks for logging in to read our articles in 2021. We look forward to bringing you the news that matters in 2022.
