Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,
The U.K.'s largest annual imaging congress, the UKIO -- formerly known as UKRC -- drew to a close in Liverpool today. Three days of persistent rain and leaden skies failed to dampen the spirits and creativity of speakers and delegates.
In the first of our four exclusive video interviews from the meeting, Dr. Giles Maskell reveals how to manage difference and avoid arguments in a team. Creating a fair and open environment must be the top priority, he thinks.
Next up is Prof. Erika Denton, who spoke about the national progress being made to improve turnaround times for image reporting. After all the recent horror stories about large backlogs of unreported scans, the tide is starting to turn, she emphasizes. Go to the CT Community.
PACS efficiency can contribute massively to faster turnaround times. Prof. Rachel Dunscombe, an advisor to Matt Hancock, U.K. secretary of state for health and social care, has some timely and practical advice on this topic.
Meanwhile, English Premier League clubs have enjoyed stunning success in European football competitions this season, and they've also invested heavily in diagnosing injuries and ensuring players return to the pitch quickly. Don't miss our interview with Dr. Gajan Rajeswaran, posted in the MRI Community.
