Europe's best shine at RSNA: French, Germans raise profile

CHICAGO - This week's settled and unusually mild weather in the Windy City has made it a pleasure to attend the RSNA congress, where Europeans have been among the star performers.

Monday's special session on France drew a huge audience, and four experts showed why the country's radiologists are playing a leading role in the global effort to improve cancer care. Click here to read more.

Leading German researchers had a great pitch in the heart of the sprawling technical exhibition at McCormick Place, and they rose to the occasion by demonstrating why Germany retains such a prominent position within medical imaging. They also provided a glimpse into the future. Go to our Advanced Visualization Digital Community, or click here.

Presenters from Bonn, Germany, have also been making the news with their study on how energy drinks can change cardiac function. Find out more in our Cardiac Imaging Digital Community, or click here.

U.K. radiologists tend to excel when it comes to breast imaging, so it was no surprise to see Dr. Andy Evans featuring prominently in clinical sessions. Find out what he had to say by visiting our Women's Imaging Digital Community, or clicking here.

RSNA President Dr. Sarah Donaldson originally worked as a nurse and research assistant, and her plea for radiologists to forge closer relationships with patients evidently came from the heart. To read about her opening address, click here.

Strong links and a healthy spirit of cooperation exist between RSNA and the European Congress of Radiology (ECR). ECR 2014 President Dr. Valentin Sinitsyn from Moscow reflects on his week in Chicago at RSNA 2013 and the upcoming meeting in Vienna, Austria, in March in this video.

On a lighter note, don't miss the spoof video shown on Sunday by Chicago's radiologists. The clip's only three minutes, and it's guaranteed to make you chuckle or maybe even laugh out loud. Click here to view it.
