Canon Medical has released these two resource documents – “Lung Ultrasound for COVID-19” and “Cardiac Ultrasound for COVID-19” – as a response to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) recent guidance that suggests that chest imaging, including lung and cardiac ultrasound, may be helpful for management of COVID-19 patients. Both documents provide clinical examples, specific protocols and recommended settings for how to use Canon Medical’s ultrasound product line effectively for each procedure.

“Healthcare providers are challenged to find effective strategies to manage patients with COVID-19 during the global pandemic – and as their partner, Canon Medical has made a commitment to providing them with the solutions they need,” said Dan Skyba, managing director, Ultrasound Business Unit, Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc. “This means not only the ideal ultrasound equipment, but also the guidance and support on how best to use it to support patient management decisions quickly.”
