In response to the pressures of finding sufficient radiology technologists, Garmisch-Partenkirchen Hospital, Germany, engaged a technologist from Siemens Healthineers in early March 2020. Gerhard Simon, MD, a radiologist and nuclear medicine physician, believes that this was absolutely the right decision, especially given the COVID-19 pandemic. However, he says that the long-term solution has to be about encouraging more young people to become technologists.
