Going Dutch on breast QA; new study on ABUS; brain stones unveiled

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

The Dutch are a clever and resourceful bunch in so many ways. Not only are they among the best in the world when it comes to doing business, mastering foreign languages, and playing attractive football, but they are also healthcare pioneers.

They are now keen to share their experiences of quality assurance (QA) in breast screening. As you would expect, they have some original ideas. Go to our Women's Imaging Digital Community, or click here.

We also have some significant news about automated breast ultrasound (ABUS). A European group led by Dr. Karin Leifland, PhD, head of the Unilabs mammography department at Capio St Göran's Hospital in Stockholm, has reported its findings in this area. Get the story here.

Reaching a diagnosis on brain stones remains an intellectual curiosity, but CT is helping to solve the mystery and meet this challenge, said experts from Belgium. Find out how by going to our CT Digital Community, or by clicking here.

For the hot topic debate at last week's European Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and Biology (ESMRMB) congress in Toulouse, France, the organizers chose to focus on resting-state functional MRI (rsfMRI). Some observers remain skeptical about whether these examinations will ever be of clinical value. Get the story here.

Also, some U.K. and French presenters of e-posters about rsfMRI collected top awards for their work shown at ESMRMB. Click here to learn more.

Last but not least, bone suppression computer-aided detection software can provide a significant boost for diagnosis of pulmonary nodules, especially those of moderate and subtle conspicuity, according to an article-in-press posted online on 25 September by the European Journal of Radiology.
