CoVID-19 Imaging Appearance

We have collected several cases from our institution of proven CoVID-19 disease. The majority of these display typical imaging manifestations: on chest radiograph, either diffuse interstitial opacities or peripheral airspace opacities; on CT, peripheral predominant ground glass or consolidative opacities.

Chest Radiograph

40-year-old man with peripheral-predominant airspace disease

84-year-old woman. Note peripheral predominance in the right lung.

60-year-old woman with diffuse interstitial opacities

60-year-old man with diffuse interstitial opacities

59-year-old man

Chest CT – Typical

78-year-old woman

Note peripheral opacity with reverse halo sign
And other more nodular opacity

31-year-old man

Peripheral patchy ground glass opacities

Chest CT – Atypical

83-year-old woman

Note diffuse ground glass with some septal thickening

80-year-old female

Small subpleural nodular opacity, unclear if related to CoVID-19
Minimal septal thickening and pleural effusions, likely related to edema.
