Moscow Radiologists Came to the Aid of Clinicians.

Diagnosing diseases is a complex process, especially when it comes to a new infection. A set of diagnostic studies helps to interpret the clinical picture of the patient correctly and to propose the right treatment plan. The Moscow healthcare system adopted the following approach: outpatient computed tomography centers for patients with suspected coronavirus infection were opened at 48 metropolitan polyclinics from the onset of the COVID-19 outbreak. Under the supervision of therapists, a set of examinations was carried out: smears for PCR, a blood test for signs of inflammation, pulse oximetry to assess blood oxygen saturation, and ECG, including computer tomography (CT). Sergey Morozov, the Director of the Center for Diagnostics and Telemedicine, was appointed Coordinator of the centers.
