A Study to Evaluate Early Detection of SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 in High Risk Radiation Oncology Patients


About this study

The purpose of this study is to develop algorithms that will enable earlier identification and testing triggers for COVID-19 in otherwise asymptomatic patients, and to identify baseline characteristics from patients who ultimately test positive for COVID-19 that may predict clinical trajectory during the evolution of disease.
