Lifting the lid on sports imaging | 3 new reports on breast cancer detection | How to reduce phone interruptions

Dear AuntMinnieEurope Member,

In this week's newsletter, I'm very proud to present to you our first audio podcast interview. It's about the world of sports imaging, which coincidentally is also the theme of the 2019 International Day of Radiology.

Podcasts are a great way to delve more deeply into a topic. You can play them in the background while you catch up with paperwork or do other chores. We plan to produce more of them in the months ahead, so please do send me your feedback and ideas.

Also worth checking out are the three latest reports in the Women's Imaging Community:

  • Norwegian researchers have sought to address a knowledge gap about digital breast tomosynthesis' ongoing performance compared to digital mammography. There is a lack of information about early performance measures for screening with digital breast tomosynthesis beyond one screening round, they say. Take a look at their study.
  • Investigators from Northern Ireland have presented their findings on higher-risk breast screening. This concept is still relatively new, but it's gaining popularity, so make sure you find out why.
  • There is new evidence that imaging specialists can detect signals of abnormality in mammograms acquired years before lesions become visible, confirming that radiologists' expertise remains essential in cancer diagnoses.

Interruptions are part of every radiologist's daily working life, but can a change of procedures lead to fewer of them? Researchers from London have found that dealing with requests for head CT scans in a different way can result in a significant reduction in the number of phone interruptions. Learn more in the CT Community.

Lung cancer screening remains a controversial area. There's an urgent need for more information, so the latest CT screening data from Germany deserves attention here, particularly given the differences identified between high-risk female and male smokers.
