Poster Information
Abstract: The COVID-19 outbreak challenges the medical community, including creating an unprecedented competition for health-care resources. Patients with cancer have
been negatively impacted during this pandemic, as many of these individuals may be immunosuppressed and of older age, making them vulnerable for potential
fatal disease. We present details and different perspectives on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on patients with cancer and on cancer imaging.
Summary: We are living through an unprecedented biopsychosocial crisis; physicians must be the voice of reason and lead by example. We must reason critically and reflect on the biases that may influence our thinking processes, critically appraise evidence in deciding how to treat patients. New research and evolving literature on radiographic manifestations of COVID-19 will continue to shed light on strategies for surviving and overcoming the current pandemic.
