DRK 2013 looms large; the Maverinck on ethics; PACS in Finland

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

Radiology is the future: that's the bold slogan of the German Radiological Society's annual meeting, the DRK, which begins in Hamburg on 29 May. As a curtain-raiser for this significant event, we've published a question-and-answer interview with Congress President Dr. Mathias Langer, which you can read by clicking here.

Ethics codes are very much in vogue, and as we revealed last week, the European Society of Radiology is the latest organization to produce one. The Maverinck has some strong views on this hot topic. You can get them here.

Finland has implemented area-based district PACS, the largest of which is the Hospital District of Helsinki and Uusimaa, and the system is making a valuable contribution to patient care. Visit our Healthcare Informatics Digital Community, or click here.

The introduction of digital systems is transforming clinical practice, particularly in medical imaging. Radiologists no longer need to be in the same geographical area, or even the same country, as patients to be able to care for them. Columnist Dr. Neelam Dugar elaborates on the changes taking place.

Anterior cruciate ligament tears pose a major diagnostic challenge, and a multinational group of musculoskeletal experts thinks it's vital to keep aware of the broad spectrum of MRI appearances at common sites of associated injury, particularly among adolescents and children. Get the story here.

New research from Austria shows that the majority of women between ages 45 and 69 are unaware of key aspects of breast screening, suggesting that a great deal of educational work still needs to be done. Find out more in our Women's Imaging Digital Community, or click here.
