Compared with other specialties, academic radiologists have a higher-than-average rate of intention to leave their institutions, according to a study that also drew substantial interest from AuntMinnie.com members this week. Interestingly, however, nuclear medicine physicians were the least likely to intend to leave, followed not too far behind by neuroradiologists. Get all of the details here.

We’re also very pleased to announce  "Keeping Up With the Radiologists," a podcast series from Saurabh Jha, MD, and Mitch Schnall, MD, PhD, of the University of Pennsylvania brought to you by AuntMinnie.com in collaboration with Penn Radiology. The inaugural episode featured a fascinating discussion on why radiology is still a good choice for medical students. Stay tuned for more episodes of "Keeping Up With the Radiologists" in 2024.

In other news, a portable PET scanner appeared to be feasible for clinical brain imaging, according to a new study. The researchers revealed that the portable scanner achieved similar results to conventional PET imaging in human subjects.
