Not long ago I published an article about the use of computed tomography (CT) to scan chest organs in patients with suspected COVID-19. The article resonated with the audience while CT imaging was positively acknowledged both in Moscow and New York. Some readers, being also regular health care consumers, expressed concern about the safety of imaging studies in the article titled: “Computed tomography causes cancer”. Prof. Sergey Morozov, CEO of Moscow Center of Diagnostics & Telemedicine explained to me when CT can actually be harmful. Alternative approaches In April and May, early diagnosis of the lung changes typical in COVID-19 pneumonia in the outpatient CT centers gave rise to an effective patient routing mechanism: some patients were quarantined and treated outpatiently in the comfort of their homes, while the others were hospitalized and received emergency medical care. In June the statistics showed a decrease in the overall number of chest CT studies conducted in the Moscow outpatient CT centers. At the moment, the operation of the CT and MRI facilities has been fully restored back to admitting medically ill patients. Wide application of the antibody testing for COVID-19 helped to shape a different system for the provision of medical care during the pandemic. https://medium.com/@s.samburskiy/computed-tomography-does-not-cause-cancer-89fd6383ed01 #ArtificialIntelligence #Telemedicine #ComputedTomography #Cancer #Covid19

Hi everyone, It's not a secret that Healthcare providers are in search for faster and more efficient control of PPE compliance during 2019-nCoV pandemic. Those efforts aim to prevent medical staff and patients from infection transmission. At the same time, if PPE compliance control is performed by human, it is risky due to human factor and human inability to focus attention permanently. Therefor I suggest you to review the way you may automate medical PPE-compliance control in your organization. It's easier that may sound. For more details, follow the link: https://www.healthcare.vitechlab.com/ppe-for-epidemiological-safety
Perhaps, I suspect if they knew (really knew) what is at stake they would be more careful Laziness does not cover it, just look at the hoops they go through because of universal precautions. It is a pain to deal with the gloves, the needles, etc. And yet they do it as they understand the consequences. Why can't we extend that same level of understanding to their computing behavior.
