In this third instalment, we will be taking you into the eye of the COVID storm and exploring 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.
