Positive predictive value of RT -PCR is higher than CT. HRCT provides probability quotion... various ILD can show same GGO’s ...

Dear @Dr. Amandeep A As per necessities both are useful

RT - PCR AND IN RESPIRATORY DISTRESS HRCT

RTPCR primary diagnostic tool for Covid 19 positive test & it does not tells grading of covid scoring. But if respiratory symptoms occurs then HRCT done & it helps how much lung involvement in covid 19 positive patient . Covid 19 virus grading & prognosis totally depends on HRCT.

My question still remains unanswered : how much percentage of False negative RTPCR vis-a-vis HRCT Chest in suspected Covid19 cases?

In initial confirmation RT PCR & And on progressive stage for clinical management, HRCT investigation is of importance.
