Latest COVID-19 research looks at lung ultrasound, CVST and VTE risk, visitation policies

Recent studies offered a new method for using lung ultrasound to assess COVID-19 patients, assessed risk of central venous sinus thrombosis (CVST), and looked at a lab test to help predict venous thromboembolism (VTE) and at the effects of restricting visitors.
