Five Minutes in Healthcare is a new series we've introduced in HealthCare Business News, where I discuss current events with some of the industry's most influential leaders, as well as innovative thinkers who are working to meet the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic.

In this installment, I check in again with Dr. Berndt Schmit, associate professor of radiology at the University of Arizona, about the role of CT in COVID-⁠19 diagnosis and the impact of the pandemic overall in Tucson.

The last time we spoke, Dr. Schmit and I discussed his charity efforts. Including the unique needs of different regions, a rural mobile outreach breast cancer screening program in Bolivia, and the over-arching challenges in keeping legacy equipment operational in places with limited resources.

We hope you enjoy the video. Please tell us what you think, and let us know who you would like to see interviewed next:
