AMVC 2020: Radiology preparedness in the COVID-19 pandemic

May 15, 2020

Radiology's prominent role in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic raises a number of vexing questions. What's the most appropriate role for radiology in COVID-19 diagnosis and management? How can radiology staff be protected from infection? And what measures should be put in place for future outbreaks?

In this May 1 talk from AuntMinnie.com's 2020 Virtual Conference, Dr. Mahmud Mossa-Basha of the University of Washington discusses how his facility prepared for the influx of COVID-19 patients, the role of imaging in detecting signs of infection, appropriate precautions for staff, and preparing for the post-COVID-19 surge.

Mossa-Basha is vice chair for clinical operations and chief of radiology at the University of Washington Medical Center, as well as director of MRI at the University of Washington School of Medicine.
