Dear colleagues and friends of IADMFR & EADMFR,
It is with great regret that we must inform you of the sudden death of our dear colleague, Laetitia Brocklebank, formerly Senior Lecturer in Oral Radiology at the University of Glasgow Dental School until her retirement, and latterly Honorary Senior Research Fellow.
Laetitia contributed enormously to Dental and Maxillofacial Radiology, undertaking important roles in both EADMFR and IADMFR and was a Past-President of BSDMFR. Amongst many achievements, she organised the very successful 13th ICDMFR in 2001 in Glasgow. While her professional activities have been invaluable to the specialty of Dental and Maxillofacial Radiology, it is her personal qualities that we remember with special fondness today. Laetitia supported so many students and colleagues in their professional and personal lives; her kindness and friendliness to others was exceptional. She was the life and soul of many ICDMFR congress social events. We will all miss her vivacity and good humour.
We send our deepest condolences to her family and especially to her partner and colleague, Professor Paul van der Stelt.
On behalf of IADMFR,
Reinhilde Jacobs, Secretary-General IADMFR
Rubens Spin-Neto, President EADMFR
Keith Horner, Emeritus Professor of Oral and Maxillofacial Imaging, The University of Manchester

Bjorn Bamse Mork-Knutsen, known to friends as "Bamse," passed away on January 29, 2019, at the age of 64.
Bamse was a lecturer at the Department of Maxillofacial Radiology, University of Oslo, Norway, and for more than 20 years an active member of the international community through the International and European Associations of Dentomaxillofacial Radiology.
Bamse was one of the pioneering specialists in Maxillofacial Radiology in Norway. He held several positions in the IADMFR board and committees and was a true ambassador of our association.
He was a great clinician and musician, a caring father and husband, and above all, an excellent friend. We would like to express our sincere condolences to his family and to our Norwegian colleagues.
Bamse will be deeply missed in IADMFR.
