Week in Review: Pain and radiology | Lifting the lid on Wiesbaden | Low-field MRI of lung

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

Pain management is becoming an increasingly significant issue in healthcare, and radiology has a central role to play. That was one of the key take-home messages at the 105th German Radiology Congress, RöKo 2024, which draws to a close in Wiesbaden on 10 May.

We've posted a Q&A interview with Prof. Philipp Paprottka, head of interventional radiology at the Rechts der Isar Clinic, Technical University of Munich, who revealed his passion for the subject.

Wiesbaden tends not to be high on the list of tourist hot spots in Germany, but it has a great deal to offer visitors, as shown by Contributing Editor Liana Gruenberg's short practical guide to the host city of RöKo 2024.

Low-field MRI can now detect many pathologies in the lungs, but there is still room for improvement when it comes to how radiologists interpret pulmonary 0.55-tesla MRI scans, delegates were told at the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM) 2024 meeting in Singapore. Get the full story in our news report.

Top global researcher Dr. Katja Pinker-Domenig of the European Society of Breast Imaging has had a busy week in Singapore. In a video interview, she spoke about her own research plans and the latest developments in breast imaging, including the clinical applications of AI.

Also at ISMRM, a team from Zurich elaborated on how a cumulative clinical risk score can provide an early predictive marker for long-term brain alterations and cognitive impairments in patients with congenital heart disease.
