Hard truths from COVID-19 front line | CT aids evaluation of COVID-19 severity | Germany issues advice on novel coronavirus

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

Staff members at the Centre d'Imagerie Paris-Nord in Sarcelles, France, have been on a steep learning curve about COVID-19 over recent weeks. They've conducted up to 80 CT scans a day on their two systems and have faced a tsunami of cases, according to radiologist and CEO Dr. Robert Lavayssière, a long-standing member of our Editorial Advisory Board.

Don't miss his personal account of the team's experiences, including details about the problems they've overcome and the clinical cases they've encountered. Go to the CT Community.

Useful and informative studies about the imaging of COVID-19 patients continue to flow from China. The latest one was published on 11 April in European Radiology. You can find out more in our news report.

Germany has become the latest nation to issue important guidance about COVID-19. The German Röntgen Society (DRG) published its statement in German, but we've summarized the contents of the DRG document for you.

In other news, we've posted a thought-provoking column from the Maverinck on big data and cloud computing. He's got some observations about data collection and archiving. Get them in our Enterprise Imaging Community.

Also, it's been a busy week for the Artificial Intelligence Community. First up is a story about an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm that can accurately differentiate between benign and malignant thyroid nodules on ultrasound exams. A second article looks at an AI algorithm that can reconstruct 4D flow MRI exams in seconds.

Last but not least, you've still got time to register for the 2020 Virtual Conference of our sister site AuntMinnie.com. The event will take place online on 30 April and 1 May and will feature six speakers, including Dr. Erik Ranschaert, PhD, president of the European Society of Medical Imaging Informatics. We'll also have a virtual trade show, where you can meet and interact with vendors and other conference attendees. More than 2,200 radiology professionals have already signed up for the meeting -- reserve your space today.
