Canon Medical Systems released new guidance on Tuesday, aimed at helping providers use ultrasound to image COVID-19 patients.
The resource covers both lung and heart US and comes after a report out of the World Health Organization over the summer, highlighting the modality’s usefulness in managing coronavirus patients.
Tustin, California-based Canon USA said the guides include clinical examples, specific protocols and recommended ultrasound settings.
The American College of Radiology on Tuesday announced a new smartphone app for mobile use of the Ovarian-Adnexal Reporting and Data System.
The interactive tool lends radiologists “easy access” to standard descriptions for managing ovarian/adnexal pathology, ACR said in a news email. It’s available for download in both the Apple and Google Play stores
“The principal goals of O-RADS are to improve the quality and communication between interpreting and referring physicians, to limit variability in reporting language and ultimately to guide patient management based on actionable information in the imaging report,” ACR said.
