In my specialty, radiology, there is less patient contact.
We are taking appropriate precautions when we do image guided procedures.
.Everyone wears a mask. If there is a procedure with a possible covid+ patient we also wear N95 under our regular mask.
.All non urgent procedures are postponed.
.Visitors are limited
.Each room with possible covid+ patient is decontaminated appropriately after the procedure.
Financially, each type of physician is also affected differently. Believe it or not, we are less busy in radiology. Potentially COVID positive patients are screened with CT scan and patients in the ICU get daily chest x-rays. However outpatient imaging for things like joint and back pain has decrease dramatically. Even studies for following up cancer treatment/progression are decreasing during the pandemic.
