ABOUT THE WEBINARs

In these unparalleled times, radiologists find themselves at the frontline in the battle against covid-19.  Radiology departments have been undergoing management and operational/clinical re-structuring to successfully face the challenges presented by Covid-19.  CXR, CT Scan and Ultrasound have become some of the key frontline diagnostic imaging tests in the recent pandemic.

With an ever-challenging radiology capacity and the departmental prioritising of chest x-ray reporting, radiologists are having to review and “hot” report the chest x-ray urgently over any other imaging investigation.

The most severely unwell Covid-19 patients are increasingly undertaking CT scans to assess potential risks with the fear of contaminating non-infected patients with covid-19.  Furthermore, decision making by clinical radiologists is evolving as one of the key components of frontline triage. This is all going so fast!

Undoubtedly, this has been, and still is, a sharp learning curve for all frontline clinicians. We all believe that we have a duty to share experiences amongst colleagues and learn from those who have been at the coalface, hence ahead of many of us. This is why Infomed in collaboration with King’s College Hospital in London have put together these two evenings of webinars with a leading faculty that has been directly involved in radiology and Covid-19.

 

The Imaging of COVID-19 webinar series is free to access.
