Week in Review: Paris 2024 looms large | Gaps in radiation safety | Impact of ovary removal

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

As any sports fan knows only too well, this is a vintage summer. The Euros football, Wimbledon tennis, and Open golf championships all reach a climax within the next month and then comes the biggest event of them all: the Olympics.

To kick off our coverage of Paris 2024, we have an exclusive interview with Dr. Jérôme Renoux, the musculoskeletal radiologist and sports imaging expert. His team looks set to be kept extremely busy in the polyclinic. We'll have further updates on their work in the weeks ahead.

When it comes to radiation protection practices of interventional radiology and cardiology catheter laboratory staff, there's a serious lack of evidence in the literature, an Irish-led research group has pointed out. Its in-depth European study attempts to fill in the gaps.

Also this week, we've covered an important new analysis about how MRI shows women who have their ovaries removed before menopause have reduced white matter integrity in multiple regions of the brain later in life. Get the full details in our report.

Finally, we have two articles about dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry. In the first study, researchers from the University of Lorraine in France identified higher rates of osteoporosis in patients two years after bariatric surgery. In the second study, a team from Deakin University in Geelong, Australia, found lower bone mineral density in people with schizophrenia.
