Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,
Austria, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, the U.K. -- these eight countries are represented among the eight finalists for the four "people awards" in the EuroMinnies 2022 awards.
Our article about the finalists underlines the sheer depth of talent that exists in radiology across Europe in clinical practice, research, training and education, and industry. Competition was intense in all categories, following your nominations. For the first time this year, radiographers have their own award.
What happens next in the EuroMinnies? Our expert panel will get to work voting on the finalists, and we expect to announce the winners in February.
January is always a popular time to make predictions for the year ahead, so we asked informatics expert Dr. Erik Ranschaert, PhD, to comment on what might happen in radiology artificial intelligence (AI) in 2022. His answers deserve close scrutiny.
Any study that emanates from the highly regarded Technical University of Munich (TUM) merits attention. Dr. Thomas Langbein, a nuclear medicine physician at TUM, and colleagues have looked at imaging of advanced prostate cancer, and they've published their findings. Head over to the Molecular Imaging Community to learn more.
Last but not least, we have a report from France, where the national society of radiology, Société Française de Radiologie, has produced guidelines on how the medical imaging community can become greener.
