Coronavirus recognize: In the case of the diagnostic x-ray and CT can help
By the novel Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 induced disease COVID-19 shows mostly non-specific symptoms. This makes the diagnosis is often not so easy. Experts are now reporting that x-ray and computed tomography (CT) can help detect the disease.
If there is any suspicion of infection with the novel Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) the proof in the rule, swabs from the mouth, nose or throat. However, x-ray and CT can help in the diagnosis.
If symptoms indicating that despite the negative Test for infection
According to a recent communication from the Medical College of Hanover (MHH), you can encounter the diagnostic procedures for COVID-19 limits.
Then x-ray and computed tomography (CT) come into play.
If a case is not unique, that is, if the SARS-CoV 2 Test by means of PCR (PCR stands for Polymerase chain reaction) is negative, but the symptoms of the patient or of the patient on something else points, then the two – or three-dimensional images support.
Coronavirus can not be detected on the images from the specific exactly
“We do the imaging, especially in severe cases and to assess the course of the disease,” explains Prof. Dr. Vogel-Claussen, Senior physician in Diagnostic and Interventional radiology of the MHH.
In addition, x-ray and CT were used to detect complications in severely ill patients in a timely manner.
The information, according to x – ray such as CT images, however, not alone for diagnosis used, because in the pictures the Coronavirus may not be specifically recognized exactly.
The radiolog interior and radio, only certain characters, notes, see in the picture, which are typical for Corona can lie. (ad)
