COVID-19 Preparedness for Nuclear Cardiology Labs: Insights from the US, China and Singapore

This discussion was recorded on March 24, 2020. ASNC leaders and global leaders in China and Singapore adressed the unique experiences relating to mitigating risk of COVID-19 exposure in the nuclear cardiology practice. 

These insights can be applied immediately to help protect patients and personnel.

Topics include:

  • Insights on the patient journey through the imaging lab from changes and prioritizing orders, patient & staff precautions, equipment considerations, changes to the interpretation and reporting experience in the reading room and more.
  • New imaging and test preparation considerations for protection of technologists as they interact with patients.
  • Insights from members of the Chinese Society of Nuclear Medicine based in Wuhan and Shanghai.
  • Successful lessons learned from Singapore.
  • Methods to specifically protect nuclear cardiology personnel from potential COVID-19 exposure.
