Radiology fighting COVID-19
53:40Thomas Kwee, Groningen / NL
In the second of three episodes dedicated to cardiovascular and workflow issues that radiologists have to face when treating patients with the novel coronavirus disease, Dr. Thomas C. Kwee will give practical and scientific insights on managing an MRI suite efficiently with the help of abbreviated protocols, as this is essential in settings of constrained resources.
Kwee is a consultant radiologist at the Department of Radiology, Nuclear Medicine, and Molecular Imaging of the University Medical Center Groningen in The Netherlands
62:25Edwin van Beek, Edinburgh / UK
Learning objectives1. To review imaging findings in COVID-19
2. To evaluate pathophysiology of COVID-19
3. To assess the role of D-dimer testing on prognosis and as an indicator for thrombosis
4.To issue guidance on use of D-dimer, additional testing and anticoagulant prophylaxis and treatment
In the first of three episodes dedicated to cardiovascular and workflow issues that radiologists have to face when treating patients with the novel coronavirus disease, Prof. Edwin van Beek will speak about vascular complications in the lung, especially thromboembolism, and how it can be efficiently diagnosed, avoided and treated.
Van Beek is the Chair of Clinical Radiology of the the Scottish Imaging Network - a Platform of Scientific Excellence (SINAPSE) and co-director of "Edinburg Imaging", a Clinical Research Imaging Centre and joint venture between the University of Edinburgh and NHS Lothian.
60:17Marco Francone, Rome / IT
Learning objectives1. To review possible mechanisms of direct and indirect cardiovascular system damage in COVID-19 patients
2. To analyze suggested diagnostic pathways in COVID-19 patients with suspected cardiovascular disease
3. To illustrate the spectrum of COVID-19 associated myocardial disease
4. To analyze the prognostic impact of myocardial injuryand anticoagulant prophylaxis and treatment
In the third and last episode dedicated to cardiovascular and workflow issues that radiologists have to face when treating patients with the novel coronavirus disease, Prof. Marco Francone will update the audience about various aspects of cardiovascular imaging related to COVID-19, such as direct and indirect damages of the disease to the CV system. He will also speak about diagnostic pathways and focus on myocardial disease.
Francone is a Professor of Radiology at the Department of Radiological, Oncological and Pathological Sciences at Sapienza University of Rome, Italy. His prominent field of research is cardiovascular imaging with both CT and MR, with a specific focus on myocardial infarction and cardiomyopathies.
