Dear Colleagues and Friends,

As we are approaching the end of this successful year, I would very much like to take the opportunity to thank you all for your continuous support and efforts in making 2018 a year of many records.

This year we have grown to count more than 110 member societies confirming our position as the world’s largest radiological society and I can already tell you that we will announce a big membership success in January 2019. Also, we received an all-time record of 8,469 abstracts for ECR 2019. The new year will mark the 25th European Congress of Radiology taking place in Vienna and we are certain that our society will reach many new milestones over the course of 2019.

On behalf of all of us at the ESR, I cordially wish you an enjoyable festive season and a healthy and prosperous New Year.

I look forward to meeting all of you at ECR 2019 (February 27 – March 3)!

Prof. Bernd Hamm
Chairman of the ESR Board of Directors

Comparing diagnostic performances

The aim of this article is to intraindividually compare the diagnostic performance of CT and MRI in differentiating non-diffuse-type autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) from pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDA). (Eur Radiol)

The European Diploma in Radiology (EDiR)

Radiologists and radiology residents in their last year of training are eligible to take part in the examination for the European Diploma in Radiology (EDiR), which certifies that their knowledge and competency is in line with the ESR European Training Curriculum for Radiology (ETC). This review deals with the organisation and content of EDiR. (Insights Imaging)

Potential toxic impact on isolated human lymphocytes

This in vitro study intends to investigate a potentially amplifying genotoxic or cytotoxic effect of different gadolinium-based contrast agents in combination with ultra-high-field 7-T magnetic resonance imaging exposure in separated human peripheral blood lymphocytes. (Eur Radiol Exp)

Prostate cancer

A group of international experts aimed to analyse the rapid developments in imaging and treatment with radiopharmaceuticals targeting prostate cancer and how they affect the development of guidelines for their appropriate use. Click here to read the conclusions. (Lancet Oncol)

Liver histology features

The aim of this retrospective analysis was to determine whether MRI-based methods for measuring liver triglycerides based on proton density fat fraction can accurately reflect a variety of liver histology features in patients suffering from nonalcoholic fatty liver disease or nonalcoholic steatohepatitis. (Gastroenterology)

Stratified Screening for Breast Cancer

This study aims to answer if risk-stratified screening for breast cancer can improve the cost-effectiveness and benefit-to-harm ratio of screening programs? Find out about its findings here. (JAMA Oncol)
