In the setting of the COVID-19 pandemic, chest imaging plays a very important role in the early diagnosis and the treatment planning for patients with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 chest infections. The UCLA Department of Radiology’s Thoracic and Acute Care Imaging (ACI) sections recognized the importance of the chest x-ray in this setting, as it is readily available in the community physician offices, urgent care clinics and hospital emergency departments. To help physicians and radiologists in these settings, they have developed the UCLA Chest X-Ray COVID-19 Guideline.
