Radiologists devise new protocol for imaging patients with Ebola

Protocol limits risk of exposure for and patients

In a breakthrough that could substantially improve physicians’ ability to rapidly evaluate patients with suspected , radiologists at have devised a protocol for obtaining using portable computed radiography. The protocol not only limits the exposure of personnel and equipment to body fluids, it also minimizes the risk of contaminants leaving the isolation unit by use of thorough decontamination procedures.
