European Society of Radiology looks back on successful International Day of Radiology 2017

The International Day of Radiology (IDOR) was celebrated for the sixth time on November 8, this year focusing on emergency radiology, and was joined by individual supporters and more than 160 radiology-related professional societies all around the world.

The new IDOR book ‘HELP – Emergency Medical Imaging’ is available on the website as downloadable pdf. Under the editorial leadership of Professor Robert F. Dondelinger from Liège, Belgium, 42 authors from all over the world contributed to the book. In addition, 30 interviews with emergency radiology experts from different countries, conducted by the ESR, have been published on the IDOR webpage.

To bring the IDOR 2017 main topic emergency radiology to the public’s attention, the ESR has created a mini website acting as an online emergency room to show examples of emergency cases, with images and explanations of how radiologists’ expertise comes into play.

ESOR ASKLEPIOS Course on Hepato-Bilio-Pancreatic Imaging Biomarkers, December 11–12, 2017; Valencia (Spain)

This course aims to familiarise fourth and fifth year radiology residents and board-certified radiologists with cutting-edge clinical and quantitative imaging technology. It addresses the definition and development of imaging biomarkers in clinical practice, focusing on the multivariate and multiparametric analysis of liver tumours, diffuse liver diseases and bilio-pancreatic conditions. It also covers clinical needs, technical solutions and practical implementation aspects as well as the main biases in validating and reporting imaging biomarkers

Science

How to write a strong research paper

Many scientific manuscripts submitted for publication present fundamental preparation mistakes, which lead to rejection. The authors of this paper aim to deliver a guide to transform a manuscript into a well-organised piece of writing that effectively communicates a hypothesis-driven scientific study. (Eur Radiol)

Reviewing studies using advanced MRI techniques

By reviewing published studies that use new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), this review sets out to assess the value of new MRI techniques in cervical cancer. (Insights Imaging)

Measuring DNA damage in EVAR operators

This study seeks to measure DNA damage and repair markers, induced by radiation in operators performing endovascular aortic repair (EVAR). (Circulation)

The effectiveness of low-dose CT in diagnosing appendicitis

Computed tomography (CT) is arguably carcinogenic and several studies have advocated lowering the CT radiation dose in the diagnosis of appendicitis. The effectiveness of low-dose CT compared to standard-dose CT in the diagnosis of appendicitis is assessed in this paper. (Lancet)
