Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,
Does radiology celebrate its successes enough? Maybe not, especially when you consider how loudly some other medical specialties shout about their achievements.
We set up the EuroMinnies awards scheme in 2019 to promote and highlight excellence in European radiology. It exceeded expectations and appears to go from strength to strength. The imaging community has welcomed the idea (based on AuntMinnie.com's well-established Minnies awards) and has been very supportive, helpful, and responsive.
Yesterday, we announced the winners of EuroMinnies 2023. The results have already created quite a stir on social media. We hope you enjoy the article as much as we loved preparing it.
Radiomics is a highly promising quantitative image analysis method that can help extract more information from images than is feasible by visual assessment alone. The fetal imaging group at the Medical University of Vienna, headed up by Prof. Daniela Prayer, is convinced that radiomics has clinical potential in evaluating lung development. Find out more in the Women's Imaging Community.
In other news, a U.K. coroner has attributed a missed fracture on CT to inadequate staffing in the radiology department and inadequate numbers of trainees. Her report has led to a lively debate. Get the full story in our CT Community.
Also, we've posted the third interview with Prof. Adrian Brady. This week he tells us about what it's like being president of the European Society of Radiology, and he looks ahead to ECR 2023, which begins on 1 March.
Sustainability looks set to be a central theme at ECR 2023, so this means a recent Italian study on CO2 emissions from CT and MRI is extremely topical and deserves close attention.
