COVID-19 pneumonia manifests with chest CT imaging abnormalities, bilateral, subpleural, ground-glass opacities with air bronchograms. Different radiological patterns are observed at different times throughout the disease course. Diffuse bilateral ground-glass opacities co-existes or progresses with consolidations and fibrosis. Evaluation of imaging features, clinical and laboratory findings could to diagnosis of COVID-19 pneumonia and assessment of prognostic values.
We presented cases to analyse the chest CT imaging features in patients with COVID-19 pneumonia, to compare the imaging and laboratory data to across the disease course and to other severe infection, like pneumocyst pneumonia.
Conclusion: Evaluation of blood tests and comparison of clinical data made it possible to diagnose a similare in the course of and CT findings, but an absolutely different disease. This comparison allow distinguish similar characteristics of different diseases and make prognostic conclusions during the course and treatment of illness.
