During the IASLC 2020 World Conference on Lung Cancer held last month, several researchers presented findings that document how the pandemic has influenced lung cancer healthcare delivery over the past year.

One study by Roxana Reyes, MD, in Barcelona suggested the pandemic has led to fewer but more serious diagnosed cases of lung cancer, leading to poorer patient outcomes.

Other studies looked at patient needs amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, the use of virtual prehabilitation for patients scheduled for lung cancer surgery, and CT scans as a diagostic tool for asymptomatic infection.
