OBJECTIVE. The increasing number of cases of confirmed coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in China is striking. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relation between chest CT findings and the clinical conditions of COVID-19 pneumonia. MATERIALS AND METHODS. Data on 101 cases of COVID-19 pneumonia were retrospectively collected from four institutions in Hunan, China. Basic clinical characteristics and detailed imaging features were evaluated and compared between two groups on the basis…

Clinical and Radiological Findings of Coronavirus Disease 2019 Pneumonia: 51 Adult Patients from a Single Center in Daegu, South Korea
Patients with laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 pneumonia have typical chest CT findings that provide important information regarding expected disease severity, and the patients in the severe group had higher severity scores than those in the mild group.
Association between clinical characteristics and CT findings in patients with coronavirus disease-2019
The severity of lung abnormalities on CT in COVID-19 patients is inversely associated with the platelets, lymphocyte count, and sodium levels, whereas positively with the age, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, D-dimer, lactic dehydrogenase, hydroxybutyrate dehydrogensase, and C-reactive protein levels.
CT Features of Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) in 30 Pediatric Patients.
The present study describes the chest CT findings encountered in children with COVID-19 and questions the utility of CT in the diagnosis and management of pediatric patients.

Background Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a highly infectious disease causing severe respiratory distress syndrome that was first discovered by the end of 2019 in Wuhan, China. Main text A
Clinical and chest CT presentations from 27 patients with COVID-19 pneumonia in Mogadishu, Somalia: a descriptive study
Dry cough, fever, myalgia, and sore throat were the most clinical presentations in patients with COVID-19 in Somalia, and GGO, crazy paving pattern, patchy consolidation, and mixed GCO were the typical chest CT manifestations.
Comparison of clinical characteristics between coronavirus disease 2019 pneumonia and community-acquired pneumonia
Lower levels of abnormal laboratory parameters, more extensive radiographic involvement, more severe respiratory compromise, and higher rates of ICU admission, ARDS and mechanical ventilation are key characteristics that distinguish patients with COVID-19-associated pneumonia from patients with community-acquired pneumonia.
Computed tomography findings and clinical manifestations in different clinical types of coronavirus disease 2019
The CT findings and clinical features of the various clinical types of COVID-19 pneumonia are different, and chest CT findings have unique characteristics in the different clinical types, which can facilitate an early diagnosis and evaluate the clinical course and severity of CO VID-19.
The novel coronavirus pneumonia (COVID-19): a pictorial review of chest CT features.
This pictorial review aims to review the CT features of COVID-19 pneumonia and mention the changes throughout the disease process.
COVID-19 pneumonia: CT findings of 122 patients and differentiation from influenza pneumonia
The presence of rounded opacities and interlobular septal thickening, with the absence of nodules and tree-in-bud sign, and with the typical peripheral distribution, may help to differentiate COVID-19 from influenza.
Vital role of chest CT in diagnosis of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)
Role of chest CT in the clinical evaluation of disease progression and more accurate diagnosis of COVID-19 is focused on.


Time Course of Lung Changes On Chest CT During Recovery From 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pneumonia
In patients recovering from COVID-19 pneumonia (without severe respiratory distress during the disease course), lung abnormalities on chest CT showed greatest severity approximately 10 days after initial onset of symptoms.

Identification of a novel coronavirus causing severe pneumonia in human: a descriptive study
A novel bat-borne CoV was identified that is associated with severe and fatal respiratory disease in humans and the amino acid sequence of the tentative receptor-binding domain resembles that of SARS-CoV, indicating that these viruses might use the same receptor.
CT Manifestations of Two Cases of 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Pneumonia
Unenhanced chest CT showed multiple bilateral areas of peripheral consolidation and there was interlobular septal thickening with a crazy paving appearance in two cases of 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Pneumonia.
Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) infection: chest CT findings.
The most common CT finding in hospitalized patients with MERS-CoV infection is that of bilateral predominantly subpleural and basilar airspace changes, with more extensive ground-glass opacities than consolidation.
CT Imaging Features of 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)
In this retrospective case series, chest CT scans of 21 symptomatic patients from China infected with the 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) were reviewed, with emphasis on identifying and
Chest CT for Typical 2019-nCoV Pneumonia: Relationship to Negative RT-PCR Testing
Some patients with positive chest CT findings may present with negative results of real time reverse-transcription–polymerase chain- reaction (RT-PCR) for 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV). In this
Identification of a novel coronavirus in patients with severe acute respiratory syndrome.
The novel coronavirus might have a role in causing SARS and was detected in a variety of clinical specimens from patients with SARS but not in controls.

nucleic acid assay was also negative at this time. Six days after admission, the third RT-PCR 2019-nCoV nucleic acid assay was finally found to be positive. When specimen tests are negative, the
A novel coronavirus associated with severe acute respiratory syndrome.
A novel coronavirus is associated with this outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome, and the evidence indicates that this virus has an etiologic role in SARS.
