Abstract

A potential link between mortality, d-dimer values, and a prothrombotic syndrome has been reported in patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) infection. The National Institute for Public Health of the Netherlands asked a group of radiology and vascular medicine experts to provide guidance for the imaging work-up and treatment of these important complications. This report summarizes evidence for thromboembolic disease, potential diagnostic and preventive actions, and recommendations for prophylaxis and treatment of patients with COVID-19 infection.
