What's the current role of imaging?
1. To recognise CT features highly suggestive of COVID-19 pneumonia and to learn how to score disease extent.
2. To understand how to appropriately use imaging to diagnose vascular complications.
3. To learn how to distinguish potentially reversible anomalies for irreversible changes on CT.
15 min
Imaging modalities: pros and cons
1. To define the value of different chest imaging modalities for patients with COVID-19 pneumonia.
2. To identify the limitations in the diagnosis and management of COVID-19 pneumonia.
3. To describe the potential roles of imaging in COVID-19 pneumonia in the context of local transmission, variants of concern, and vaccination levels.
15 min
Long-term sequelae
1. To identify and name the typical pulmonary changes encountered in the follow-up of COVID-19 patients.
2. To understand the differences of fibrotic lung changes and prior organising pneumonia after COVID-19 pneumonia.
3. To know which imaging modalities and protocols are appropriate and at which disease stage.
