Week in Review: Countdown to ECR 2024 begins | Imaging of tricky abdominal cases | Moving from Ireland to Canada

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

ECR is less than a fortnight away, and it's safe to say Prof. Marion Smits, PhD, is getting extremely excited ahead of European radiology's annual extravaganza.

We caught up with her to get her perspective on the upcoming congress in Vienna. In our video interview, she also spoke honestly and openly about social media. If you want to go straight to the part about X (formerly Twitter), TikTok, etc, the discussion begins 9 minutes and 20 seconds into the recording. Next week we'll be posting an exclusive interview with Prof. Carlo Catalano, president of ECR 2024.

Which imaging technique is best for difficult abdominal and pelvic cases? Spectral CT, also known as dual-energy CT, say researchers from a leading university hospital in Madrid. They've shared their clinical experiences and provided three excellent figures that deserve a close look in our report.

You may recall a recent Irish study about a point-of-care clinical decision support tool that reduced the number of patients who simultaneously had a CT and MRI ordered for the same clinical indication. We've now posted an interview with the lead author, Dr. Amy Schranz, PhD. She's doing her radiology residency in Canada and has spoken about her new life.

The use of AI software with brain MRI improves the diagnostic accuracy for the monitoring of abnormalities in patients undergoing beta amyloid-directed antibody therapies for Alzheimer's disease, according to Belgian authors.

In another important study, a group from the University of Cambridge in the U.K. has found evidence on MRI scans that the brain compensates for age-related deterioration by enlisting other areas to help with brain function and maintain cognitive performance. Get the full story here.
