Hiring the best trainees; overdiagnosis of pulmonary emboli; Gustav Bucky's genius

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

Recruiting radiology trainees can be something of a lottery and a minefield. It's no easy task to sift through the mountain of CVs, but it's something that has to be done.

Columnist Dr. Paul McCoubrie takes a humorous look at the whole process, and has some advice for assessing candidates and reading between the lines in their submissions. Click here to read more.

Some pulmonary emboli (PE) are best left undiscovered, according to authors in this week's BMJ. High-resolution CT has evolved to the point where it can detect the smallest filling defects, but new evidence shows a greater risk of death from treatment than from PE, they believe. Go to our CT Digital Community, or click here.

All of you know what a Bucky table is, but how familiar are you with Gustav Bucky? Our history columnist Dr. Adrian Thomas reveals more about the amazing life and creative genius of this German radiologist. Visit our Digital X-Ray Community, or click here.

At last month's European Society of Gastrointestinal and Abdominal Radiology annual meeting in Barcelona, Irish authors were commended for their work on hepatocellular carcinoma. Often these unique tumors are diagnosed on imaging features alone, so it's vital to be aware of the latest developments in this area. Learn about them here.

An audit carried out at a district general hospital in northwest England has found that in almost 9% of cases, the recommended referral guidelines for breast MRI examinations are not followed. The reasons for this are worth a close look, and you can do so by going to our MRI Digital Community, or by clicking here.
