Krestin on population imaging; high cost of U.S. health; iPads for trainees?

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

Europe's major MRI congress, the European Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and Biology, gets underway tomorrow, and the meeting begins with an intriguing plenary lecture about population imaging.

To get a sneak preview, we interviewed Dr. Gabriel Krestin, PhD, immediate past president of the European Society of Radiology, about this relatively new concept and its potential impact on radiology's future. Go to our MRI Digital Community, or click here, and keep checking back for further reports from the conference.

The government shutdown in the U.S. has hit the headlines across the world this week, and the fierce debate over proposed healthcare reforms lies at the heart of the controversy. The Maverinck has given his unique perspective on the high cost of the U.S. health system, including radiological examinations. Find out more here.

Should radiology trainees be given Apple iPads? This might seem extravagant in the current economic climate, but some researchers are convinced it makes sense. Visit our Advanced Visualization Digital Community, or click here.

Fresh evidence of PET/CT's capability to change patient management decisions has come from a new U.K. study of recurrent malignant melanoma. Used via referral from a specialist skin cancer multidisciplinary team, FDG-PET/CT can become a very valuable tool, the authors believe.

Acute abdominal and pelvic pain during pregnancy requires careful investigation, so the European Society of Urogenital Radiology's updated guidelines deserve a close look. You can read more here.

Next month's International Day of Radiology is starting to loom large, and plans for the event are now in place. Thoracic imaging will be the main focus of the event, and patient groups will be more closely involved. Click here to learn more.
