COVID-19 BSTI Imaging Database

The British Society of Thoracic Imaging (BSTI), in conjunction with Cimar UK’s Imaging Cloud Technology (, have designed, built and deployed a simple, free to use, anonymised and encrypted online portal to upload and refer imaging of patients with either confirmed or suspected COVID-19. From these cases, BSTI hope to provide an imaging database of known UK patient examples for reference and teaching. The aim is to rapidly disseminate breaking clinical and diagnostic advice to frontline healthcare nationally, using real imaging examples encountered across the country.


BSTI Reporting Templates

Standardised imaging criteria may help guide management in COVID19. Use these templates to help with speed and accuracy. Customise and place into voice recognition templates if required.
