Impact of COVID-19 on Radiology Faculty - An Exacerbation of Gender Differences in Unpaid Home Duties and Professional Productivity

Plaunova, Anastasia; Heller, Samantha L; Babb, James S; Heffernan, Cathleen C
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES/OBJECTIVE:The COVID-19 pandemic stresses the tenuous balance between domestic obligations and academic output for women across professions. Our investigation aims to evaluate the impact of the pandemic on the home duties and workplace productivity of academic radiologists with respect to gender. MATERIALS AND METHODS/METHODS:A 49-question survey was distributed to 926 members of Association of University Radiologists in October 2020. Several categories were addressed: demographics; workplace changes; stress levels and personal experiences with illness; time spent on domestic obligations; and perception of productivity during COVID-19. Statistical analyses were performed using SAS version 9.4 software (SAS Institute, Cary, NC). RESULTS:A total of 96 responses across 30 states, 53.1% male and 46.9% female were received. Women report spending more time on unpaid domestic duties than men prior to COVID-19, with men spending a median of 5-10 h/wk and women spending a median of 10-15 h/wk (p = 0.043). With pandemic onset, both genders reported that women did more of the homecare, when not split equally. Women with young children reported a significant decrease in work-from-home productivity compared to men with young children (p = 0.007). Men reported they had more time to be productive compared to women (p = 0.012). CONCLUSION/CONCLUSIONS:The COVID-19 pandemic threatens to disrupt the advancement of women in radiology leadership roles by creating disparate effects on productivity due to increased workloads at home for women. This could potentially lead to decreases in promotions and research productivity in years to come that far outlast the acute phases of the pandemic.

Ductal Carcinoma in Situ and Progression to Invasive Cancer: A Review of the Evidence

Heller, Samantha L.; Plaunova, Anastasia; Gao, Yiming
Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), breast cancer confined to the milk ducts, is a heterogeneous entity. The question of how and when a case of DCIS will extend beyond the ducts to become invasive breast cancer has implications for both patient prognosis and optimal treatment approaches. The natural history of DCIS has been explored through a variety of methods, from mouse models to biopsy specimen reviews to population-based screening data to modeling studies. This article will review the available evidence regarding progression pathways and will also summarize current trials designed to assess DCIS progression.

Surgery for a quadricuspid aortic valve: case report and comprehensive review of the literature

Plaunova, Anastasia; Gulkarov, Iosit; Tortolani, Anthony J; Worku, Berhane
Quadricuspid aortic valve (QAV) is a rare cardiac anomaly which can present with clinically significant regurgitation. The case is presented of a 38-year-old female patient with a regurgitant QAV managed surgically. A review of the current literature relating to QAV is also provided. The most common valve type that is operated on is type B, thus separating the surgical population from that of all QAVs, in which type A is most common. Moreover, aortic aneurysms were found to be a common and previously unrecognized significant characteristic among QAV patients. The majority of patients with a regurgitant QAV undergo replacement, although repairs have recently gained popularity. To date, the outcomes for both groups appear similar.
