Look - we're sorry. We know you are sick of COVID-19, but when this came across our desk we knew it was important.

Now we ask - could it provide a superior diagnostic strategy to even our beloved PCR?? https://www.ultrasoundgel.org/105 https://www.annemergmed.com/article/S0196-0644(20)31269-5/fulltext
