1.  Breast screening review—a radiologist’s perspective 
The British Journal of Radiology  2012;85(1015):845-847.
Recently published articles in the lay press and scientific journals have questioned the value of breast screening, and have raised concerns about both possible harmful effects and the information provided for females when they receive their screening invitation. A review of data from screening trials and the process for providing information for the public on screening has been announced by Professor Sir Mike Richards, National Clinical Director for Cancer. What are the major issues involved and what expectations should radiologists and other members of the screening team have of the review?

2.  CT stroke window settings: an unfortunate misleading misnomer? 
The British Journal of Radiology  2011;84(1008):1061-1066.
This commentary will discuss the use of the “stroke window” settings in the evaluation of CT head examinations and advocate their more widespread use in patients who present with neurological symptoms in addition to patients with suspected stroke. We present examples of the use of stroke windows, which revealed subtle abnormalities that were not readily apparent on default brain window settings and were subsequently confirmed on MRI or follow-up CT. As a result we suggest that stroke windows should be routine in the review of all CT head examinations.
