Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,
When the doors open on Friday for the French national radiology congress, the JFR, there will be some surprises in store for the 18,000 or so delegates. The meeting has a new name -- the Journées Françaises de Radiologie Diagnostique et Interventionnelle -- and there will be a greater emphasis on ethics and the radiologist's relationship with the patient.
We've interviewed congress President Dr. Jean-François Meder, PhD, and French Society of Radiology President Dr. Laurent Verzaux about their hopes and plans for JFR 2012. Click here to learn more, and make sure you visit our home page over the next few days for live news from the meeting.
Clinical acceptance of CT colonography (CTC) continues to grow steadily, so the updated guidelines from the European Society of Gastrointestinal and Abdominal Radiology (ESGAR) look certain to arouse plenty of interest. To find out more about ESGAR's latest recommendations on CTC, go to our CT Digital Community, or click here.
Researchers from Münster, Germany, have published new findings on the use of breast ultrasound for recalled screening participants, and their analysis deserves a close read. Visit our Women's Imaging Digital Community, or click here.
Due to numerous combinations of movements that occur during ankle inversion trauma, it's important to be aware of the different types of injuries that can develop. New information on this topic was presented at the European Society of MR in Medicine and Biology congress in Lisbon. Go to our MRI Digital Community, or get the story here.
Workload was a central theme at last week's Management in Radiology scientific meeting in Milan, and we spoke with one of the presenters -- Dr. Oğuz Dicle from Izmir, Turkey -- about how technology can help in this area. Read more in our PACS Digital Community or by clicking here.
