The Canadian Association of Radiologists (CAR) recognizes the important role that radiologists have in response to the unprecedented challenge of COVID-19. As healthcare providers working on the frontlines, the CAR is here to support our members. We are also committed to ensuring that patients receive the best care possible during these challenging times. COVID-19 is having a tremendous strain on medical imaging services and health human resources in our healthcare system. The CAR has been working with our affiliate partners to help provide support and access to valuable resources to help radiologists navigate this global pandemic.
