Lung Ultrasound (LUS) use is not a novelty to assess patients with respiratory challenges. Today LUS is being used in several European countries to detect histopathological signs of COVID-19. Webinar speakers will discuss LUS use in and outside the hospital; how signs of pneumonia relate to the other signs of COVID-19; potential triage applications; and required training.
