COVID-19: Prevailing Clinical, Imaging, Healthcare and Economic Issues of 2022 Online Course

Initially seen as a primarily respiratory illness, as this novel coronavirus disease spread globally, both the clinical and radiologic manifestations of its infection continued to morph; COVID-19 now affects every organ system of the human body. With half of the patients hospitalized for COVID-19 showing persistent lingering symptoms—and up to 30% of symptomatic non-hospitalized patients and even 20% of originally asymptomatic individuals—imaging professionals need to recognize the so-called “long-haul” symptoms of COVID-19, too. Presented by radiologists across multiple subspecialties, alongside experts in epidemiology, public health, and oncology, this Online Course will deliver a frontline-focused update on the principal problems still plaguing physicians around the world.
