BSTI COVID-19 Lung Ultrasound Guidance

BSTI COVID-19 Lung Ultrasound Guidance

***updated 13.04.2020***

In many Critical Care settings, critical care physicians already have lung ultrasound (LUS) expertise to aid monitoring and clinical decision-making. However the BSTI recognises that in some centres radiologists may be asked to provide LUS support as well. 

In view of this, we are grateful to Dr Tom Semple, Consultant Cardiothoracic Radiologist at the Royal Brompton Hospital, for sharing Guidance on Lung Ultrasound for COVID-19 patients in Critical Care Areas, available here.

Tom explains the LUS evaluation process in this video:
