CT Scan

Pneumonia is a common complication of COVID-19 and has a characteristic pattern on chest CT scans. Dr. Adam Bernheim, a radiologist at Mount Sinai Health System, New York, and other doctors analyzed 121 CT scans from China and concluded that COVID-19 pneumonia presents itself as hazy patches, or “ground glass opacities”, that “tend to cluster on the outside edge of both lungs, by the ribs”.
