Thanking our Radiologists
In hospitals and community clinics across the province, COVID-19 has caused an unprecedented shift in the way we practice. As a safety precaution, most outpatient imaging at the hospitals have now been limited and the volumes at clinics are likewise reduced.
To our Radiologists and their front line colleagues dealing with this crisis day in and day out, BCRS thanks you from the bottom of our hearts.
