Abbreviated MRI protocols to manage an efficient workflow

Abbreviated MRI protocols to manage an efficient workflow

53:40Thomas Kwee, Groningen / NL

Description
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

Pulmonary vascular complications in COVID-19 – a management strategy proposal

Pulmonary vascular complications in COVID-19 – a management strategy proposal

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.

Update on Cardiovascular Imaging during the COVID-19 pandemic

Update on Cardiovascular Imaging during the COVID-19 pandemic

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.

Description

This three-part series reflects on the lessons learned from the first wave and how management of workflows and whole imaging departments are affected by the ongoing second wave of COVID-19. Moderated by specialists in cardiovascular and cardiothoracic imaging Dr. Maja Hrabak Paar from Zagreb/Croatia and Dr. Monika Arzanauskaite from Liverpool/United Kingdom, the three episodes will focus on cardiovascular and workflow issues that radiologists have to face when treating patients with the novel coronavirus disease.
