Unsustainable: COVID-19 Demands Increased Support for Radiologists

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Life is sometimes described as a complex tapestry and progress is not linear, but twisted like stitches, contributing to the final fabric. When tension arises, the most recent stitches unravel first. The COVID-19 pandemic is pulling back the thread of humanity's progress. Those disproportionately affected by the pandemic's tension are those whose progress is most recent and, therefore most tenuous, including women in medicine. The profession of radiology, recently acknowledged by practice leaders as experiencing burnout as a very significant problem (Parikh et al., 2020 [1]), is rapidly facing an untenable situation.
