Week in Review: Advances in liver cancer | AI's impact on breast imaging | The first sister of radiology

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

Support continues to grow for thermal ablation as an effective way of treating cancer. Research now suggests that ablation can lead to a better safety profile, lower costs, and shorter hospital stays, while also being on par with surgical resection in terms of local control and overall survival.

In a new study, a team from Amsterdam explored the pros and cons of thermal ablation compared with surgical resection for patients with small-size resectable colorectal liver metastases.

Danish researchers have also kept busy this week. A group from Copenhagen has published the results of an important investigation into the impact of AI on breast radiology's workload and recall rates.

The U.K. Imaging & Oncology (UKIO) congress begins in Liverpool on Monday. Ahead of the event, we look at the remarkable life of Dr. Florence Stoney, a formidable feminist with a strong faith in women's capacity to fill top positions. Her contributions to radiology will be celebrated in a special history session at next week's meeting.

Back to the present day, a recent survey suggests that the imaging community may be depending too much on whole-body CT in pediatric emergencies. A total of 60% of patients seen over four years at a major trauma center received a full-body scan.

Another hot topic right now is green radiology and sustainability, so it's a serious global concern that the volume of gadolinium pollution from MRI contrast agents appears to be rising sharply. Don't miss our report on some striking analysis from Japan.
