Week in Review: Google Health study on breast AI | Imaging of endometrial cancer | Top 10 articles for 2019

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

The global medical imaging community barely had time to draw breath from ushering in the arrival of a new decade before the first important research study of 2020 was posted at precisely 7 p.m. Central European Time on 1 January.

Perhaps not surprisingly, the topic was artificial intelligence (AI). Don't miss our news report, which includes some analysis from screening pioneer Dr. László Tabár. Go to the Women's Imaging Community.

The optimum use of ultrasound prior to surgery in cases of endometrial cancer is a difficult but vitally important topic, so new research from the Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm is well worth a close look.

The authors are convinced their risk prediction model can be used to decide which women should or should not be subject to lymphadenectomy or sentinel node biopsy, depending on the individual risk of lymph node metastases. Read more in our Ultrasound Community.

At the start of this week, we revealed our 10 most-viewed articles over the past 12 months. MRI safety, top trends from ECR 2019, the controversy at the Karolinska, and the fraud trial of pediatric radiologist Dr. Maria Klusmann all featured prominently in this list.

The run up to Christmas is always a hectic time, so you might have missed two intriguing articles posted on 23 and 24 December.

The first is about a startup company that uses virtual reality to reduce the anxiety of patients before scans. The French Society of Radiology and two other national organizations have given their annual prize in innovative medical imaging to HypnoVR. Head over to the Advanced Visualization Community.

The second piece is an interview with the highly respected Russian radiologist Prof. Valentin Sinitsyn. He's shared his views on artificial intelligence and the future of radiology. Learn more in the Artificial Intelligence Community.

Finally, I'd like to wish all of you the very best for 2020. We can't wait to bring you the news that matters over the year ahead!
