Radiology 20/20 vision; world's 1st x-ray department; Brussels cardiac briefing

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

Retire from work, but not from life, so the saying goes. Dr. Richard Fowler seems to have been listening intently.

Having retired recently from a senior post at Leeds General Infirmary, he gave a visionary public lecture last week about molecular imaging and training. Our reporter, Becky McCall, was in the packed audience, and you can read her report here.

It's probably not well known that the first x-ray department was established in the Scottish city of Glasgow. The founder, John Macintyre, deserves greater recognition, according to Dr. Adrian Thomas. To learn more, go to our Digital X-Ray community, or click here.

An important health briefing took place last week at the European Parliament in Brussels, and one of the presentations focused on comparative effectiveness research and education in cardiovascular imaging. Find out more in our Cardiac Imaging Digital Community, or click here.

Misunderstandings between radiologists and rheumatologists occur quite often, but can be avoided by better working relationships, according to authors in Insights into Imaging. Radiography, MRI, CT, ultrasound, and nuclear medicine all play a central role in the diagnosis and monitoring of rheumatological disorders, so good collaboration between radiology and rheumatology is vital.

Using 3D workstations for planning endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) of abdominal aortic aneurysms can improve both short- and midterm outcomes for patients, researchers from Lille, France, have found. After adoption of a 3D workstation for performing endograft sizing, the group achieved a significant reduction in the rate of dangerous type 1 endoleaks after infrarenal EVAR.

Fresh facts and figures about the use of cardiovascular MRI in Italy have been published, and we have comprehensive coverage of the new survey. Click here to find out more.

Also, please do make sure you visit our brand new Middle East Community. Links between European and Middle Eastern imaging professionals are becoming ever stronger, and this evolution has prompted the launch of this section. We can promise you some exciting coverage over the coming months.
