CT Insider

Dear AuntMinnieEurope CT Insider,

Which imaging technique is best for difficult abdominal and pelvic cases? Spectral CT, also known as dual-energy CT, say researchers from a leading university hospital in Madrid.

The authors have shared their clinical experiences with us, and they've also provided us with three excellent figures that deserve a close look. You can do so in a news report posted today.

You may recall a recent Irish study about a point-of-care clinical decision support tool that reduced the number of patients who simultaneously had a CT and MRI ordered for the same clinical indication. As a follow-up, we've posted a Zoom interview with the lead author, Dr. Amy Schranz, PhD. She's now doing her radiology residency in Canada and also spoke to us about her new life.

Another Zoom interview discusses how AI can help improve the identification and analysis of vulnerable or high-risk atherosclerotic plaques in the coronary arteries. Cardiac imaging expert Prof. Dr. Dr. Marc Dewey from Berlin gives his views on this hot topic.

Given the lower radiation doses administered by modern scanners, CT is now being used more widely in pediatric imaging. U.K. specialist Dr. Kath Halliday has given a keynote about the future of imaging of children. Don't miss our news report.

CT pioneer Prof. Mathias Prokop, PhD, has been elected second vice president of the European Society of Radiology (ESR). He will now preside over ECR 2027. This is surely great news for the modality.
