Golden rules of radiology; Olympic road to Rio; sex reassignment surgery

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

Have you ever thought of compiling a list of simple rules of radiology? Dr. Paul McCoubrie, a senior radiologist who works in Bristol, U.K., has done just that.

I'm sure you'll enjoy his 26 golden rules. Please do forward the link to your colleagues and print off the rules for your department notice board. Click here to read them, and make sure you post a comment in our Forums with your feedback or if you would like to share some of your own rules.

Knowledge transfer is vital to the successful organization of huge events such as the Olympics. In the run up to the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, the process will step up a gear in London later this week, when the team that ran the imaging service at the 2012 games will speak about its experiences. Also, the equipment used at London 2012 has now been sold. Go to our MRI Digital Community, or click here to read more.

Sex reassignment surgery is complex, difficult, and fraught with risk, but appropriate use of imaging can boost the chance of a positive outcome. Radiologists from Trieste, Italy, have looked at this area, and you can read their findings here.

Any study from the University of Groningen, the Netherlands, generally is worth a close look, and that comment certainly applies to new lung research conducted at the institution. Find out more in our CT Digital Community, or by clicking here.

The U.K. College of Radiographers has published fresh guidance on clinical reporting and preliminary evaluation by radiographers. The contents look certain to be scrutinized by imaging departments across Europe. Visit our Digital X-Ray Community, or click here.

Finally, lung cancer looks set to overtake breast cancer as the leading cause of cancer death for European women by 2015, largely due to smoking, according to an article in Annals of Oncology. Get the story here.
