Dr. Bard's latest article on "Recognizing Covid-19 on 3D Ultrasound of the Pleural Lining" is featured on pgs 18-21 of RADIOLOGY TODAY. " Imaging of the lung is functionally divided into outpatient, noncritical patients and acutely ill patients- or those suspected of infectious disorders. Contagious conditions such as Covid-19 require equipment that is easily sanitized or disposable. Handheld units and disposable gel packets are preferred in potentially contaminated circumstances".


PAVING MEDICAL HISTORY FROM THE FRONT LINES: THE ULTRASOUND MOVEMENT - From a military call of duty in Thailand (1921) to a Post-9/11 First Responders Cancer Screening program to the first Covid-19 triage units in Italy, ultrasound imaging has evolved to support medical diagnostic needs of all FRONT LINES. Both Dr. Robert Bard and the many scanning benefits of ultrasound technology have dedicated an entire work history of responding to some of the highest demands in emergency scanning (See Feature article)

IMAGE GUIDED MANAGEMENT OF COVID-19 LUNG DISEASE - Robert L. Bard, Editor | Springer Nature
This book offers a detailed and up-to-date overview of image-guided diagnostics in COVID-19 lung disease. A range of image-guided CT and ultrasound procedures in different chest regions are described. For each procedure, the benefits of image guidance are presented and its specialized application explained in the adult (outpatient, triage and hospital setting) and the pediatric patient. Lung Ultrasound Image Guidance assesses this rapidly evolving disease in real time while CT scans may be precisely targeted. The editor provides his 50+ year experience of multidisciplinary chest imaging including battlefield experience to optimally combat this recent viral assault. Image-Guided Management will be a valuable guide and reference not only for radiologists and pulmonary practitioners, but also for imaging technicians and First Responders. The intense public interest in safety and prevention is covered in the chapters on protection and decontamination. A chapter addressing the multiplicity of organ damage is useful for cardiologists and internists given the long differential diagnosis of respiratory distress entities. The emergence of point of care ultrasound providing 24/7 diagnostic access into inflammatory processes of the lung heralds its ascendance to the top tier of acute care diagnostic tools.
