Dr. Krishnaraj Kumar Nethala
Abstract: Learning objectives: Early identification of the disease process through imaging and preventing the spread of infection and decrease case fatality rate. Background: Radiological examinations of COVID-19 positive patients play a vital role in early diagnosis and disease course assessment. Asymptomatic infected individuals are the infectious sources of SARS-CoV-2, and some progress rapidly, even resulting in acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) with a high case-fatality rate. This study presents you the imaging findings of COVID -19 as most COVID-19 infected patients were diagnosed with pneumonia and characteristic C. T. imaging patterns. Imaging findings: 1. Ground glass opacities (Total) 2. Simple ground glass opacities.3. Ground glass opacities with Crazy paving pattern.4. Consolidation.5. Ground glass with a sub pleural curvilinear line etc. Conclusion: Asymptomatic patients are the asymptomatic transmitter, and some patients can progress rapidly in the short term, it is essential to early diagnose asymptomatic patients with COVID-19. C. T. scan has excellent sensitivity in screening and detecting patients with COVID-19 pneumonia as early identification of COVID-19 cases is vital.
