Parizel on ECR 2017 | Breast MRI for screening | Brexit's effect on imaging

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

As ECR 2017 fast approaches, we're pleased to bring you part two of our interview with Dr. Paul Parizel, PhD, in which the president of this year's congress shares what will be happening next week in Vienna.

With the theme of "the flower gardens of radiology," Dr. Parizel invites radiology professionals -- and in particular youth -- to discover all that ECR 2017 has to offer, including more interactive sessions and a more prominent role for social media. Learn more about what's in store by clicking here.

A new study out of Germany by a team led by noted researcher Dr. Christiane Kuhl provides good news on the utility of breast MRI for screening women beyond just those at high risk of breast cancer. Dr. Kuhl has won plaudits for her previous work, so this study is definitely worth a read.

The U.K.'s exit from the European Union continues to generate headlines. A recent article in the British Journal of Radiology took a look at the political consequences of Brexit, and how the split could herald a new era for medical imaging in the National Health Service.

What's the best imaging modality to use in guiding treatment of patients after a stroke? A team from Sweden and Singapore addressed this question in a new study you can read by clicking here.

Other stories we're highlighting this week include this article on a new interventional angiography system that was launched on 22 February, an article in our Molecular Imaging Community on the use of PET/CT to follow up organ transplants, and a study in our CT Community on how more stringent criteria for determining who is eligible for CT lung cancer screening could make the exam more cost-effective.

Our RADCast @ ECR 2017 launches next week, so be sure to check back for all the coverage you'll need for this year's congress.

See you in Vienna!
