Week in Review: New debate over breast screening | Impact of AI on workload and accuracy | ESR survey on AI implementation

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

Over the past couple of years, very little has been said or written about the possibility of overdiagnosis in breast cancer screening, but the issue came to prominence this week following the publication of a paper by a group of mammography skeptics.

We spoke with one of the Danish authors behind the research, and also asked Dr. László Tabár from Uppsala, Sweden, for his views on the study. Get the full story in the Women's Imaging Community.

Another topical issue in breast screening is how the use of artificial intelligence (AI) software can improve accuracy and reduce workload. The findings of a large multinational study involving nearly 1.2 million digital mammograms have just been published, and they deserve a close look.

Interestingly, the European Society of Radiology (ESR) has now unveiled the results of its comprehensive survey about the implementation of AI. Conducted during the first quarter of 2022, it attracted responses from 690 radiologists. The findings are pretty mixed, but at least the analysis provides a picture about the state-of-play in Europe.

The ESR has also issued advice on the wearing of face masks at ECR 2022, which begins on 13 July. If you're making the trip to Vienna, it's important to be aware of the regulations on public transport. Our editorial team will be working onsite at the congress, and we're very much looking forward to bringing you live news from the event.

Finally, we have a report about how the use of photon-counting CT can cut radiation dose. This represents great news for cancer patients who often undergo multiple CT exams, say the German authors. Go to the CT Community to learn more.
