December 28, 2016 -- We're pleased to offer the top 10 stories of 2016 on AuntMinnieEurope.com. Based on our list, the single most important issue facing European radiologists was the ongoing debate over the safety of gadolinium-based contrast agents for MRI.

This topic created a considerable buzz at ECR 2016, soon after which the European Medicines Agency began its review of the risk of gadolinium deposition in brain tissue. The outcome of this eagerly awaited investigation is expected in early 2017, and it's no surprise to see the issue feature so prominently in our lineup.

Other subjects that appealed to our readers were major new developments among the large imaging vendors, the potential use of breast MRI for screening, the shortage of radiologists in the U.K. and the implications of Brexit, imaging at the Rio Olympics, radiation dose reduction in Germany, and the error rate among teleradiologists.
