Lung pathologies are common, and some patients even go on to develop acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), which requires intubation and artificial respiration of the critically ill patient. Imaging of the lung is absolutely necessary to obtain a diagnosis, assess the course of disease and for treatment. Particularly in gynecology and obstetrics (OBGYN), ultrasound scans of the lung can be a useful additional tool when caring for pregnant patients in...

Abstract In response to the Coronavirus-2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, sweeping changes were made to obstetric care. Many practices rapidly converted to telehealth visits or drive-through obstetric services (Turrentine M et al, Obstet Gynecol 2020; 136(1):29-32). Others modified out-patient care practices such as reducing the number of ultrasounds or antenatal surveillance visits. In the manuscript by van-de-I'Isle and colleagues, the authors evaluated if a change to gestational diabetes (GDM) screening guidelines suggested by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) during the COVID-19 pandemic cha...

The Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) disease (COVID-19) is characterized by a severe pneumonia and/or acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) in about 20% of infected patients. Computed tomography (CT) is the routine imaging technique for diagnosis and monitoring of COVID-19 pneumonia. Chest CT has high sensitivity for diagnosis of COVID-19, but is not universally available, requires infected or unstable patient to be moved to the Radiology unit with potential exposure of several people, CT room needs proper sanification after use, and is underutilized in children and pregnant women for radioexposition concerns.
