COVID-19 Imaging info Update


The sentence ‘there is no place for chest x-ray’ can be corrected as follows: 

‘The use of chest radiographs in patients presenting with fever and respiratory complaints should be limited. Radiology departments that have a dedicated chest radiography unit, close to the emergency department or isolation wards, may consider this in certain cases as an alternative for CT. However, the same safety measures (as for CT) need to be taken into account'
