Dr. Manish Bhagat, Dr. Rajkumari Rawat

Abstract :

INTRODUCTION:- COVID-19 is the infectious disease caused by the coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, which is a respiratory pathogen. WHO first learned of this new virus from cases in Wuhan, Peoples Republic of China on 31 December 2019. It quickly spread to other countries and was declared a pandemic in March 2020 by the World Health Organization (1,2). With 46,963 new coronavirus infections being reported in a day, India's COVID-19 caseload rose to 81,84,082, while the number of people who have recuperated from the disease surged to 74.91 lakh, according to the Union Health Ministry on 2nd nov 2020. In this article, we review the typical imaging findings in COVID-19, the differential diagnoses, and common complications.AIM AND OBJECTIVE:- We aimed to explore the chest CT features of the patients who were RT-PCR positive, along with imaging of associated pulmonary complications.RESULTS:- In our study, out of 250 pateints who found to be RT-PCR positive, 203 patients (81.2%) had abnormal CT findings and 47 pateints(18.8%) had normal chest CT scan. In our study common imaging finding were GGO (81.20%), crazy paving (23.60%) , fiosis (24.8%), nodes(7.2%) nodules(8.4%), pleural effusion(13.2%), cavity consolidation (5.2%) and pleural thickening (8.4%) were found.CONCLUSION:- In this study CT imaging helped in evaluation of common findings of COVID 19 infection and its associated pulmonary and vascular complications. Patients with confirmed COVID-19 pneumonia have typical imaging features that may be helpful in early screening of highly suspected cases and in evaluating the severity and extent of the disease.
