Dear Women's Imaging Insider,
MRI is proving to be of increasing importance in breast imaging and screening, but a widespread lack of capacity remains an overriding concern across Europe.
Dutch researchers have addressed this problem by looking closely at how to optimize patient throughput and workflow. They presented their findings and analysis at the European Society of Breast Imaging (EUSOBI) annual meeting held in Valencia, Spain. Find out more in the Women's Imaging Community.
In another report from EUSOBI 2023, you can read about how radiologists at University College Hospital in London approach the imaging of breast implant ruptures. They're convinced that ultrasound has a role to play in these cases when the equipment is used appropriately.
Predicting fetal birth weight has generally been a calculated guess in the past, but as is happening in so many spheres of life, AI is assisting here. A group from the University of Amsterdam has described their preferred method. Don't miss our news report posted today.
