ESR creates YouTube playlist for COVID-19 events


youtubeThe European Society of Radiology (ESR) has created a playlist on their YouTube channel dedicated to events and news related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Currently, the playlist offers three videos. The first is a special report about radiology’s role in fighting the virus. Nicola Sverzellati (University of Parma, Parma, Italy) shares his experiences of working with patients and image management in Europe’s most affected area. He also discusses the challenges Italian radiology departments face and the diagnostic flowchart his team has developed since the outbreak.

The second video showcases geneticist and immunologist Josef Penninger (Institute of Molecular Biotechnology of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, Vienna, Austria), who discusses angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) as a potential treatment for the disease, as well as its relationship to the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) in instances of lung injury.

The third video again features Sverzellati, as well as Francesco Sardanelli (University of Milan, Milan, Italy). The two discuss the ongoing Italian response to the pandemic, and, chaired by Adrian Brady (Mercy University Hospital, Cork, Ireland), answer questions posed by audience members from the previous two broadcasts on the myecr YouTube channel.
