Dear CT Insider,

During the past week, we have posted three practical, timely new articles in the CT Digital Community, and you won't want to miss them:

  • After a prostatectomy, complications are relatively common, and they require very careful investigation. To satisfy the increasing demands of urologic surgeons and referring clinicians in this area, a sound knowledge of CT and good technique are essential, according to radiologists from Milan. Get the story here.

  • Due to radiation concerns, the phrase "CT justification" is heard more and more these days, but researchers from Finland have found a neat way of delivering a consistently high percentage of clinically justified CT examinations in young patients by taking a few simple steps. You can read more here.

  • A survey carried out in the Irish Republic and U.S. has identified an urgent need for CT users to better understand and adapt key parameters to optimize patient dose and image quality, plus an overall requirement for ongoing education in dose optimization. Click here to learn more.

Also, forensic imaging in Europe has received a boost from the Malaysian company iGene, which is pushing ahead with its plans for digital autopsy facilities that will use a 64-slice CT scanner and visualization chamber, 3D imaging software, and automated workflow systems. Find out more here.

The use of coronary CT angiography for patients with chest pain came under close scrutiny at this month's annual meeting of the European Society of Cardiology, and we have published two articles on this topic from the congress. For an exclusive interview with world expert Dr. Stephan Achenbach from Erlangen in Germany, click here. And for details about a new study from Turin, Italy, click here.
