Europe's top 3 ultrasound trends | How to avoid turf battles | Should surgeons perform their own scans?

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

It's fair to say Dr. Paul Sidhu knows a bit about ultrasound. He pioneered the introduction of contrast-enhanced ultrasound in the U.K. in the 1990s, and his ECR 2019 honorary lecture about pediatric ultrasound received many plaudits.

At last week's EuroSon congress, we asked Dr. Sidhu to nominate his top three trends in the modality. Find out more in our video interview, or go to the Ultrasound Community.

Another well-known European radiologist, Dr. José Luis del Cura, specializes in interventional ultrasound and takes great pride in avoiding turf battles with clinical colleagues. To learn about his magic formula and general advice, listen to a second video from EuroSon.

Should surgeons perform their own ultrasound scans in the operating room? Yes, says Dr. Matthias Wüstner, a keynote speaker at EuroSon 2019 in Granada, Spain. A surgeon by training, he's switched entirely to imaging now, and he has strong views on the topic.

Artificial intelligence was a central theme at the 100th German Radiology Congress, which drew to a close on Saturday. Two speakers in Leipzig outlined how they've developed a deep-learning algorithm to assist with liver MRI scans. Don't miss our news report, or visit the Artificial Intelligence Community.

The question of whether radiologists should read a particular number of mammograms each year to optimize their performance has remained open to debate, but now a Norwegian group claims to have found the best range. Find out what they suggest.

Meanwhile, a team from a top Italian facility has made effective use of augmented reality and 3D printing to plan surgery for a woman with major health complications, including ovarian cancer and an atrial septal defect. Head over to the Advanced Visualization Community.

Next week we'll bring you coverage from the UK Imaging & Oncology Congress (UKIO) in Liverpool. Keep an eye on our home page from Monday.
