Week in Review: Injuries from pumping iron | Vast gaps in contrast know-how | Ramadan fasting

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

Musculoskeletal injuries from weightlifting are becoming increasingly common, especially among inexperienced lifters and beginners. Many of these patients are being referred for imaging, so it's important for radiologists to know about injuries that occur most frequently.

MRI and ultrasound play a central role in assessing and diagnosing these cases. Researchers from a leading facility in Madrid have shared their experiences in this field, including four fascinating cases. Get the full story in our special feature.

Many readers will probably suspect that younger colleagues have a lack of knowledge about contrast media and adverse reactions, but they won't have the scientific evidence to back up this notion. Now a group of authors has provided this evidence in the form of a large European survey conducted in September/October 2023.

How can healthcare professionals cope with Ramadan fasting? This tricky question has been addressed in an illuminating blog posted by the U.K. Royal College of Radiologists.

Dr. Jamie Howie and Dr. Uzoma Nnajiuba have built up a loyal following since they launched their authoritative radiology podcast nearly six years ago, but they've now decided to hang up their microphones. In a final episode, they nominate their top six podcasts.

Our editorial advisor Dr. Filippo Pesapane is doing great work in breast AI. In an uplifting video, he talks about his current projects, and near the end of the interview, he reveals his unbridled joy over becoming a new parent.
