Spectrum of CT Chest Findings in Asymptomatic COVID-19 Patients

Dr. Krishnaraj Kumar Nethala

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.
