To understand the diagnosis and management of interstitial lung abnormalities and pulmonary vascular disease in patients with COVID-19 infection, both during acute infection and after recovery. 

In this webinar, we will learn from experts in the field about the management of ILD and pulmonary vascular disease related to COVID-19 infection. With our understanding of COVID-19 infection and long term complications still limited, this webinar will provide physicians a structured way of assessing and managing these patients. 

With respect to patients diagnosed with and/or being followed up post COVID-19 infection:

  • To describe the aetiology of pulmonary vascular disease in COVID-19
  • To summarise the management approaches to diagnosing and treating pulmonary vascular disease in COVID-19
  • To describe the different interstitial patterns seen on CT
  • To summarise the management approach to persistent radiological abnormalities
