-> AdEchoTech develops the “Melody” telemedicine tele-ultrasound system, a telemedicine technique that allows an expert to perform an ultrasound on a distant patient (several hundred kms) under technical conditions and responsibilities very close to a conventional ultrasound. This technique makes sense in the face of the challenge of combating the covid-19 virus, by allowing in equipped places to establish an additional barrier to the spread of the virus: either by protecting isolated patients (EPHAD, prisons, isolated centres …) by avoiding moving them, thus keeping them at a distance from the risks of contamination; either by allowing the expert to intervene and bring his expertise in remote locations to contaminated or un contaminated patients thus protecting the expert from possible contamination; Finally, the Melody device also enables the mobilization and use of quarantine experts or the support of experts from other regions since they do not need to move. Melody tele-ultrasound can be used in most ultrasound disciplines (abdominal, urological, pelvic, obstetrical, cardiological, thoracic, doppler…).

->Guerbet, the world leader in medical imaging, remains fully engaged. Guerbet develops and produces contrast products used for diagnostics in medical imaging, including X-ray scanners and MRI scans. Guerbet also develops products used in interventional imaging. As part of the Covid-19 epidemic, iodized contrast products are used to track patients with worsening clinical signs. A chest scan with contrast product injection, with a usual iodine concentration (350 mg/mL), is then performed to look for worsening lesions or a complication such as pulmonary embolism or pneumothorax. Guerbet’s teams are fully mobilized to continue the production of these essential products to healthcare professionals and patients.
