  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 injury

 

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.
