Double reading remains a controversial issue in Europe. While the skeptics still doubt whether it can ever be a practical solution in today's cost-conscious environment, enthusiasts believe double reading can be viable provided the correct procedures are followed.
Important research from Norway has shed new light on this subject, and looks set to shape the future thinking of key decision-makers. Go to our CT Community, or click here.

A rise in breast density is linked to an increase in the risk of breast cancer. That's the main finding of a group of researchers in Egypt, who gave a presentation about their work at ECR 2016. For our news report, visit the Women's Imaging Community or click here.
Dose-monitoring software was a hot topic at ECR 2016, and we've posted two fresh articles about some of the latest developments in this emerging field. To read about the software's impact on workflow, click here. And to learn about the technology's contribution to CT optimization, click here.
Meanwhile, it is with great sadness that we bring you news of the untimely deaths of two well-known radiologists during the past week: Dr. Moshe Graif, who became an honorary member of the European Society of Radiology in 2012 and was chair of the Israel Radiological Association for 12 years; and Dr. Patrick Courtheoux, PhD, professor of neuroradiology at the University Hospital Center of Caen in France. If you would like to share your memories of either of these men or pay a tribute to them, please email me at email@example.com.
Finally, many of you read last week's article about the radiologists who were caught up in the recent bombings in Brussels. Two more people who were at the airport when the explosions went off have now made their contributions to our article: Dr. Tom Mulkens and Dr. Didier De Surgeloose.
