An unprecedented sanitary challenge is threatening human beings due to COVID-19
pandemic. There is no light at the end of the tunnel concerning treatment and worries
from a possible second wave start to arise even before the end of the first one. We
conducted a multicenter study to reassess the different aspects of radiology
departments’ preparedness in Lebanon stating the points of strength and more
importantly depicting the points of weakness. Lessons were then extracted to be more
prepared for possible future similar circumstances.
