Update from the ESR Journals Family

The ESR is pleased to inform you about the latest happenings within its journals family:

The ESR’s flagship journal, European Radiology, received an Impact Factor (IF) for 2017 of 4.027, climbing from 3.967 in 2016! Prof. Yves Menu, Editor in Chief, is thrilled with this news and looks forward to the future development of his journal. Find out more

Insights into Imaging remains under evaluation for an IF, and has seen an upward trend in citation numbers and downloads which its Editor in Chief, Prof. Luis Martí Bonmatí, aims to further increase in 2018.

The youngest member of the ESR Journals Family, European Radiology Experimental, recently celebrated its one-year anniversary since the online publication of its first articles. The journal, edited by Prof. Francesco Sardanelli, applied in late 2017 for PubMed indexation, whose evaluation is ongoing, and its application for Medline is still being prepared. Read more here

ESR becomes MedTech "Trusted Partner"

We are proud to announce that the ESR recently passed the self-assessment test of MedTech to become one of a growing number of "Trusted Partners". This and the Trusted Partner logo are visible symbols of the ESR's commitment to compliance with MedTech's "Europe Code of Ethical Business Practice".
Though events of Trusted Providers still need to pass the Conference Vetting System, the Trusted Provider status helps MedTech Europe member companies to identify partners who are compliant with the "Code" and to provide early support to them. Read more here

European School of Radiology (ESOR)

ESOR ASKLEPIOS Course on Cardiac Imaging, October 17-19, Graz/Austria
This course is aimed at residents in their late years of training as well as board-certified radiologists interested in updating their knowledge on cardiac radiology. Topics from essential basic information on cardiac CT and MRI technique as well as imaging protocols across clinical scenarios and symptoms to advanced applications such as functional assessment and cardiac MRI flow imaging will be addressed. For more information click here.

ESOR GALEN Advanced Course on Musculoskeletal Radiology, October 18-19, 2018; Ghent/Belgium
The course is aimed at senior residents, board-certified radiologists and fellows, and is designed to advance the knowledge of an array of indications for musculoskeletal multimodality imaging. Common pathologies and imaging pitfalls in the diagnosis of joint, bone, limb nerve and soft tissue disorders will be highlighted. Please click here to view the whole programme.

Education on Demand

The first half of 2018 saw the accreditation of 20 e-learning modules by the Austrian Medical Chamber, which translates into 45 more e-CME to obtain for Education on Demand users. It is now possible to obtain more than 550 e-CME on the e-learning platform.
The account creation on Education on Demand is free of charge for all ESR members and ESR Friends! Don’t miss out on our continuously growing content!

Post-contrast acute kidney injury – Part 1

The Contrast Media Safety Committee (CMSC) of the European Society of Urogenital Radiology (ESUR) has updated its 2011 guidelines on the prevention of post-contrast acute kidney injury (PC-AKI). The results of the literature review and the recommendations based on it were used to prepare the new guidelines and are presented in two papers. The first paper covers topics such as the terminology used, the best way to measure eGFR, the definition of PC-AKI, and the risk factors for PC-AKI, including whether the risk with intravenous and intra-arterial contrast medium differs. To find out more, please click here. (Eur Radiol)

Post-contrast acute kidney injury – Part 2

The second paper on the results of literature review deals with topics which include stratification of PC-AKI risk, the need to withdraw nephrotoxic medication, PC-AKI prophylaxis with hydration or drugs, the use of metformin in diabetic patients receiving contrast medium and the need to alter dialysis schedules in patients receiving contrast medium.

Image-guided minimally invasive treatment for small renal cell carcinoma

Despite surgical partial nephrectomy still being considered as the “gold standard” for the definitive management of small malignant renal masses, the recent evidence supports the use of an image-guided minimally invasive approach as a first-line treatment. This review offers an overview of the most widely used percutaneous renal ablation treatments, focusing on their main technical aspects and application techniques for curative ablation of small renal cell carcinoma (stage cT1a).

Radiological findings in ancient Egyptian canopic jars

To evaluate the potential and the limitations of standard clinical imaging modalities for the examination of ancient Egyptian canopic jars and their contents, a series of four ancient Egyptian canopic jars was imaged comparing the three standard clinical imaging modalities: x-rays, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Click here to find out more about the study. (Eur Radiol Exp)

Cavitary Lung Diseases

Cavities are occasionally encountered on thoracic images and their differential diagnosis is large. This paper offers an algorithmic approach to their evaluation by initially excluding mimics of cavities and then broadly classifying them according to the duration of clinical symptoms and radiographic abnormalities. Find out more here. (Chest)

Breast cancer screening and primary prevention

Increased knowledge of breast cancer risk factors provides opportunities to shift from a one-size-fits-all screening programme to a personalised approach, where screening and prevention is based on a woman's risk of developing breast cancer. This paper concluded that there are considerable unresolved issues and challenges and that the potential implementation will require a more complex framework. Read more here. (Breast)

Negative Multiparametric Magnetic Resonance Imaging for Prostate Cancer

Multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) of the prostate has excellent sensitivity in detecting clinically significant prostate cancer (csPCa), but the clinical utility of negative mpMRI (nMRI) is less clear. This paper aims to assess the outcomes of men with nMRI and clinical follow-up after 7 years of activity at a reference center. Click here to read the full report. (Eur Urol)
