Join us for the third episode of the ESR Connect Special Reports dedicated to supporting the imaging community and addressing questions and challenges during the current COVID-19 pandemic. This special session features two renowned chest radiologists from France and Spain, who will share their unique country perspectives as well as practical and institutional experiences during these challenging times.

Building on previous sessions related to imaging findings and appropriate use of modalities, this episode will focus on practical imaging equipment issues and recommendations on how to maintain radiology services in terms of equipment and operation for non-COVID patients during the pandemic.

This episode is brought to you in collaboration with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the International Society of Radiology (ISR). It is a great pleasure to welcome Dr. May Abdel-Wahab, Director of the IAEA’s Division of Human Health, who will provide the introductory statement and set the scene for this important discussion.

Prof. Marie-Pierre Revel, Professor of Radiology from Paris, France, will present the recently published advice from the ESR and the European Society of Thoracic Imaging (ESTI) entitled “COVID-19 patients and the Radiology Department”. Prof. Revel will highlight France’s experience in relation to practical imaging equipment issues and address considerations for the upkeep of imaging services for non-COVID-19 patients during this pandemic. Providing Spain’s views and experiences for these significant considerations, we will be joined by Prof. Marcelo Sanchez Gonzalez, Professor of Radiology from Barcelona, Spain, for his unique country perspective.

The moderator for this episode will again be ESR 2nd Vice President, Dr. Adrian Brady from Cork, Ireland, who will facilitate an exciting Q&A segment, providing our virtual audience with the opportunity to ask questions that may not have been addressed in previous sessions.
