Patients May Still Be Presenting with Effects of COVID-19 Six Months After Infection

There seems to be confusion among the public as to how COVID-19 affects infected individuals. While headlines noting that the U.S. recently passed the half-million mark in related deaths are hard to ignore, too many people are under the impression that the virus leads to one of two wildly diverse outcomes: it’s either deadly or “no big deal.” That couldn’t be further from the truth, however, as new data published in JAMA Network Open indicate that many patients with COVID-19 continue to experience lower health-related quality of life for as long as 6 months after infection.

Top stories from the virtual RSNA

In keeping with the unprecedented nature of 2020, the annual Radiology Society of North America meeting was, for the first time ever, held in a virtual format. It marked only the third time in the society’s history of over 100 years that it did not converge in person. The previous two times? 1943 and 1945, due to transportation and gasoline supply issues during and immediately following World War II. Fortunately, the virtual meeting had much to offer, including an abundance of industry unveilings, partnerships and promising research findings.
