Is the use of DR/X-ray valuable in managing COVID-19 patients?

  • Is the use of DR/X-ray valuable in managing COVID-19 patients?

    The Fleischner Society recently published a Multinational Consensus Statement for the Role of Chest Imaging in Patient Management during the COVID-19 Pandemic in the journal Radiology defining the scenarios when chest X-ray is indicated.  Publications for the use of X-ray in COVID-19 patients can be found here.

    The ACR recommends that facilities consider deploying portable radiography units in ambulatory care facilities for use when chest X-ray is medically indicated for use in COVID-19 patients. The surfaces of these systems can be easily cleaned, avoiding the need to move patients to radiography rooms.
