Women's imaging is a rapidly changing area of radiology, and this new community will help AuntMinnieEurope.com meet the specific needs of European women's imaging specialists.
(Vocus/PRWEB) March 17, 2011
Radiology portal AuntMinnieEurope.com today launched its new Women's Imaging Digital Community, a special section devoted to coverage of issues in women's medical imaging in Europe. The new section is being supported by an unrestricted sponsorship from IT and medical technology company Sectra.
AuntMinnieEurope's Women's Imaging Digital Community provides in-depth, highly focused news on key technologies and new clinical developments in women's imaging, such as mammography, digital breast tomosynthesis, spectral imaging, computer-aided detection, breast MRI, and breast ultrasound. The community is the first in a series of special sections on medical imaging modalities that AuntMinnieEurope.com plans to roll out in coming months.
"Women's imaging is a rapidly changing area of radiology, and this new community will help AuntMinnieEurope.com meet the specific needs of European women's imaging specialists," said Philip Ward, AuntMinnieEurope.com editor in chief. "As our recent coverage of the European Congress of Radiology indicates, women's imaging is one of the most vibrant areas of radiology."
Sectra sees the sponsorship as part of the company's commitment to improving the quality of breast cancer detection and treatment, through technologies such as its photon-counting and spectral mammography.
"AuntMinnieEurope.com has already become an excellent resource for European radiologists, and this new community will make it even more indispensible," said Torbjörn Kronander, president of Sectra Medical. "We are pleased to support a new tool for improving the quality of breast care and education in Europe."
