Volpara Solutions today said it is collaborating with DetectED-X to provide free access to learning modules on how radiologists can detect COVID-19.
DetectED-X is designed to help radiologists use CT lung scans to interpret coronavirus cases faster and with more accuracy.
Volpara also said it gave an educational grant to Mammography Educators for a free virtual CME course on April 16.
“Whether breast centers have suspended all screening temporarily or are running minimal hours, this is a good time to get CE credits,” Louise Miller, cofounder of Mammography Educators, said in a news release. “In this session, participants will learn strategies for planning their time wisely now and preparing for increased patient volumes when centers resume regular screening exams.”
Breast centers can remotely access mammography quality and performance data using Volpara’s Enterprise software, which includes access to training resources.
Volpara clinical specialists will also be hosting virtual training sessions to help centers prepare for the return to normal operations.
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank our customers and all healthcare workers and first responders for their extraordinary dedication, and want to do anything we can to support their efforts to serve our communities at a local level during the COVID-19 pandemic,” CEO Ralph Highnam said. “Our teams across the globe are working remotely to offer virtual training and support, knowing that together we will navigate the unprecedented global challenge before us.”
