USARad offers COVID-19 screening program

By AuntMinnie.com staff writers

March 11, 2020 -- Teleradiology services provider USARad has launched a COVID-19 screening program.

Through this initiative, a network of chest CT-trained radiologists will use artificial intelligence algorithms to provide screening diagnostics for the disease and consult with other medical specialists, including pulmonologists and infectious disease experts. The COVID-19 screening program is in partnership with Medical Diagnostic Web (MDW.io), which connects hundreds of radiologists for various conditions and diagnoses.

USARad also recently signed a joint distribution deal with Israel-based Nanox to bring 3,000 Nanox digital x-ray systems to the U.S. Once cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the companies plan to ship the mobile devices to high-risk areas to provide screening and lower the risk of coronavirus transmission.
