Update on COVID-19
COVID-19 has presented unprecedented challenges for the Nuclear Medicine Community, and as someone has said, it is an example of the VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous) world that we live in.
I am glad to say that, as a whole, we have been able to rise above the challenges with resilience and to learn from the experiences that we have gone through.
Here is a sampling of the publications, video conferences and guidelines that were produced by our Nuclear Medicine physicians over this period for information and future reference.
