Incidental CT findings in the lungs in COVID-19 patients presenting with abdominal pain.

Clin Imaging 2020 May 28;67:1-4. Epub 2020 May 28.

Icahn School of Medicine, Department of Diagnostic, Molecular, and Interventional Radiology, 1 Gustave Levy Place, Box 1234, NY, New York 10029, United States of America.

As the 2019 novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) continues to spread, some patients are presenting with abdominal symptoms without respiratory complaints. Our case series documents four patients who presented with abdominal symptoms whose abdominopelvic CT revealed incidental pulmonary parenchymal findings in the imaged lung bases and were subsequently confirmed positive for COVID-19 via laboratory testing. It remains to be seen whether these patients will eventually develop respiratory symptoms. Read More

Chemotherapy-induced pulmonary complications in cancer: Significance of clinicoradiological correlation.

Indian J Radiol Imaging 2020 Jan-Mar;30(1):20-26. Epub 2020 Mar 30.

Department of Radiodiagnosis, Dr B.R.A. Institute Rotary Cancer Hospital, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.

Chemotherapy while revolutionizing cancer management by improving survival and quality of life; is also associated with several adverse effects. Lung is the most common organ affected in chemotherapy-related complications, due to either drug toxicity or more commonly due to infections caused by immunosuppression and less commonly due to immune-mediated injury. Radiology, when used in combination with clinical and lab data, can help reach the specific diagnosis or narrow down the differentials. Read More

The emerging spectrum of cardiopulmonary pathology of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19): Report of 3 autopsies from Houston, Texas, and review of autopsy findings from other United States cities.

Cardiovasc Pathol 2020 May 7;48:107233. Epub 2020 May 7.

Internal Medicine, McGovern Medical School, The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth), Houston, Texas, USA; Center for Advanced Cardiopulmonary Therapies and Transplantation, McGovern Medical School and Memorial Hermann Hospital-Texas Medical Center, Houston, Texas, USA.

This paper collates the pathological findings from initial published autopsy reports on 23 patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) from 5 centers in the United States of America, including 3 cases from Houston, Texas. Findings confirm that COVID-19 is a systemic disease with major involvement of the lungs and heart. Acute COVID-19 pneumonia has features of a distinctive acute interstitial pneumonia with a diffuse alveolar damage component, coupled with microvascular involvement with intra- and extravascular fibrin deposition and intravascular trapping of neutrophils, and, frequently, with formation of microthombi in arterioles.

Division of Cardiology, Hospital Umberto I, Nocera Inferiore (SA); Division of Cardiology, University of Campania L. Vanvitelli, Naples.

SARS-CoV-2 infection, responsible for COVID-19, can determine cardiac events, which require a quick diagnosis and management, and should not be overlooked due to the presence of COVID-19 infection. In some cases, cardiovascular symptoms can also be the first and only manifestation of SARS-CoV-2 infection. In patients with COVID-19, the full cardiovascular disease diagnostic algorithm can be hindered by logistic restrain mainly derived from the difficulty of transporting patients in critical conditions to Radiology or Hemodynamics wards.

Department of Emergency Medicine, the First Affiliated Hospital, School of Medicine, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou 310003, China.

Since the global outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in 2003, China has gradually built a robust prevention and control system for sudden infectious diseases. All large hospitals have a fever clinic that isolates patients with all kinds of acute communicable diseases as the first line of medical defense. The emergency department, as the second line of medical defense in hospitals, is constantly shouldering the heavy responsibility of screening communicable diseases while also treating all kinds of other non-communicable acute and critical diseases (Zhang et al.

How to Reorganize the Radiology Departments to Face the 2019 Coronavirus Disease Outbreak.

Disaster Med Public Health Prep 2020 May 19:1-3. Epub 2020 May 19.

Department of Radiology, Ospedale Fatebenefratelli, ASST Fatebenefratelli Sacco, Milan, Italy.

Radiology departments have been directly involved from the beginning of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) emergency to provide imaging lung assessment of suspected and positive patients while ensuring the execution of other routine and emergency examinations for non-COVID-19 patients. To limit the risk of the infection spread, radiology departments should be reconfigured. We propose the example of the reorganization of the Radiology Department of our hospital, in the center of Milan, in Northern Italy, which consisted of the creation of 2 completely distinct pathways and distinct radiological machines for COVID-19 positive or suspected positive and for non-COVID-19 patients.

The role of the radiologist in diagnosing the COVID-19 infection. Parma experiences.

Acta Biomed 2020 May 11;91(2):169-171. Epub 2020 May 11.

Division of Radiology, University of Parma, Parma, Italy; Department of Medicine and Surgery, University of Parma, Parma, Italy.

The severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is a new virus responsible for the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), a respiratory disease that ranges from an asymptomatic or mild flu-like illness to severe pneumonia, multiorgan failure, and death. Imaging might play an important role in clinical decision making by supporting rapid triage of patients with suspected COVID-19 and assessing supervening complications, such as super-added bacterial infection and thrombosis. Further studies will clarify the real impact of imaging on COVID-19 patients' management and the potential role of radiology in future outbreaks. Read More
