CT findings in COVID- 19 patients

CT findings in COVID- 19 Patients ----- COVID- 19 at the early stage often presents,with multifocal patchy shadows or ground glass opacities located in the lung periphery, subpleural area and both lower on chest CT scans. The long axis of lesion is mostly parallel to the pleura. Interlobular septal thickening and intralobular interstitial thickening, displaying as subpleural reticulation a " crazy paving " pattern, is observed in some ground glass opacities .A small number of cases may show solitary, local lesions or nodular/ patchy lesion distributed consistent with bronchus with peripheral ground glass opacities changes. Disease progression mostly occurs in the course of 7- 10 days,, with enlarged and increased density of the lesions compared with previous images, and consolidated lesions will air bronchogram sign Critical patients may show further expanded consolidation with the whole lung density showing increased opacity, sometimes known as WHITE LUNG, After the condition is relieved, the ground glass opacities can be completely absorbed and some consolidation lesions will leave fibrotic stripes or subpleural reticulation .
