The COVID-19 pandemic is the greatest global health emergency in a generation. The UK now faces a second surge that could overwhelm the NHS. Diagnosis and triage pathways are absolutely crucial in treating patients and containing the virus.
Imaging services have taken centre stage in orchestrating the fight against COVID-19, with radiologists finding themselves at the front line of the NHS’ COVID-19 response. The expertise of specialist chest imaging doctors has been pivotal in the development of a national strategy to ensure early diagnosis, reduce cross-infection and deliver high quality treatment and follow-up care for COVID-19 patients.
