The next episode of "ESR Connect - Radiology fighting COVID-19", will focus on the benefits and challenges in the development and implementation of new protocols and guidelines in times of the COVID-19 crisis. Standardisation, evidence and quality assurance are fundamental to modern, high-class health care, but the current pandemic shows that time can be our biggest enemy, putting immense pressure on health care providers. How can we make sure to adapt to a new problem not only as quickly as possible but also as accurately as possible?
Moderator Helmut Prosch, Professor of Radiology at the Medical University Vienna, will welcome two chest imaging experts from world-renowned institutions to share their first-hand experience in developing and implementing new protocols and guidelines in their departments.
Professor Michelle Ginsberg, chief of thoracic imaging at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York will speak on the developments in the US’ most affected area of the past weeks, and how MSKCC was challenged to adapt its routines as cancer center to the new circumstances.
Dr. Arlette E. Odink is chair of chest radiology at the Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam, and will share her experience in coordinating guidelines and protocol development and implementation in her department, as well as on Dutch national level.
