oday, diagnostic imaging is

all about speed, efficiency and patient comfort. As the 12th Medical Imaging and

Diagnostics conference at Arab Health approaches, this issue covers several topicas that will be touched on during the event. Dr. Stefano Pacifici from Italy reviews

digital breast tomosynthesis as a new tool for early detection of breast cancer. With breast cancer on the rise around the world, particularly in Middle Eastern regions, early detection is key. Digital breast tomosysnthesis is a technique that allows a volumetric reconstruction of the whole breast from a finite number of low-dose two-dimensional projections. The aim is to remove noise on images to give physicians a clearer picture. Continuing on the theme of speed and efficiency, Andrew Graley, who

is Healthcare Director at Polycom, discusses the value of teleradiology. With radiologists frequently working extended hours to meet the needs of their patients – continuously dividing their time between medical procedures, reporting, multi-disciplinary meetings, and being on call – teleradiology has proven to become a valuable asset to the medical world. It also allows expertise to be shared more easily between physicians around the globe, ultimately benefiting the patient. It is not too late to register for the

Imaging and Diagnostics conference at Arab Health in January. For more information, visit www.arabhealthonline. com and follow the link to the congress. I look forward to meeting you there.
