Imaging of coronavirus disease 2019 part 22

Streptococcus pneumonia is characterized by the consolidation of lobes or lobules without GGO. Both mycoplasma and aspiration peumonia distribute along bronchovascular bundle, which is significantly different from COVID-19 pneumonia. In study comparing chest CT from 219 patients with COVID-19 pneumonia in China and 205 patients with other cause of viral pneumonia in the United States, COVID-19 pneumonia cases were more likely to have a peripheral distribution  (80 versus 57 percent), and GGO (91 versus 68 percent). COVID-19 patients more frequently had multifocal involvement on CT, compared with unifocalinvolvement in SARS and MERS.
