    PonderMed #13 Dr Sam Hare: A chest radiologist's take on COVID 19

    What is "Classic COVID"? CXR vs CT chest? Should we be getting more CTPAs? I chat to Dr. Sam Hare (@lungdiagnosis) about what COVID 19 looks like on imaging, along with some other interesting stuff including the crucial role of the radiographer in this pandemic.

    Much love everyone
