very useful and clear information on the use of ultrasound in diagnosis of Covid lung disease. I am a plastic surgeon who uses color Doppler ultrasound for microvascular flaps.

Very useful, concise and informative. As an RN with a basic understanding of US technology it made me appreciate even more how physicians could use less invasive methods to diagnose and monitor C19 patient’s lungs. Thank you.

Enjoyed this course. It´s an evolving area. For third world countries where the availability of CT is not frequent; lung ultrasound is of great application. One question that many of my colleagues ask is what level of proficiency do you need to learn lung ultrasound? Thanks for your help in better understand the applicability in these difficult times. Best wishes.
