ABSTRACT
COVID-19 pneumonia is a newly recognized lung infection. Initially, CT imaging was demonstrated to be one of the most sensitive tests for the detection of infection. Currently, with broader availability of polymerase chain reaction for disease diagnosis, CT is mainly used for the identification of complications and other defined clinical indications in hospitalized patients. Nonetheless, radiologists are interpreting lung imaging in unsuspected patients as well as in suspected patients with imaging obtained to rule out other relevant clinical indications. The knowledge of pathological findings is also crucial for imagers to better interpret various imaging findings. Identification of the imaging findings that are commonly seen with the disease is important to diagnose and suggest confirmatory testing in unsuspected cases. Proper precautionary measures will be important in such unsuspected patients to prevent further spread. In addition to understanding the imaging findings for the diagnosis of the disease, it is important to understand the growing set of tools provided by artificial intelligence. The goal of this review is to highlight common imaging findings using illustrative examples, describe the evolution of disease over time, discuss differences in imaging appearance of adult and pediatric patients and review the available literature on quantitative CT for COVID-19. We briefly address the known pathological findings of the COVID-19 lung disease that may help better understand the imaging appearance, and we provide a demonstration of novel display methodologies and artificial intelligence applications serving to support clinical observations.

You are invited to a free live virtual event by The British Institute of Radiology

Covid-19 Imaging part 3

5 June 2020
1330 – 1645hrs BST (GMT +1)

  • Take a look at the past experience and the future of COVID-19
  • Look into the eye of the COVID storm and explore lessons learnt, both from a radiologist’s and a radiographer’s perspective.
  • We will present the CT appearances of severe respiratory failure in COVID and look into how the virus has impacted on oncology outcomes and pathways.
  • Having looked back, we take a look forward to how we might adapt pathways and training in what could be an uncertain future.

Machine learning for the quantitive analysis of medical imaging | X-ray

Dr Timor Kadir and Dr Rajarshi Banerjee

Will artificial intelligence or machine learning cure cancer? Will it replace doctors?

In this session, Dr Timor Kadir will discuss some of the real world applications of such technologies and go into some depth on two particular areas: stratification of patients with possible lung cancer and management of patients with chronic back pain. Both will be based around medical imaging and he will discuss what ML/AI can provide beyond what has been possible to date and its impact on the role of clinicians. Dr Rajarshi Banerjee's will discuss the use of quantitative MRI and big data to improve the care of patients with liver disease.

Thank you.

The Role of Emergency Radiologists in the Management of Polytraumatized Patients

Professor Mariano Scaglione, Consultant Radiologist, Pineta Grande Hospital, Italy and Past President of the European Society of Emergency Radiology.

Overview

The role of radiologists in the emergency department has changed drastically in the past twenty years. In this lecture, you will learn about the role of emergency radiologists, showing how their role is significantly greater than simply writing a remote report. You will learn about practical scenarios such as detecting vascular injuries and how to advise and report the most critical cases in a timely/effective manner.
