The Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) disease (COVID-19) is characterized by a severe pneumonia and/or acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) in about 20% of infected patients. Computed tomography (CT) is the routine imaging technique for diagnosis and monitoring of COVID-19 pneumonia. Chest CT has high sensitivity for diagnosis of COVID-19, but is not universally available, requires infected or unstable patient to be moved to the Radiology unit with potential exposure of several people, CT room needs proper sanification after use, and is underutilized in children and pregnant women for radioexposition concerns.

In the case report by Inchingolo et  al,1 the authors recommend lung ultrasound (US) examination as a diagnostic imaging tool for pregnant women with suspected coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The typical US findings of COVID-19 pneumonia, described by authors, are as follows: (1) a patchy distribution of interstitial artifactual signs (single or confluent vertical artifacts, small white lung regions), (2) an extended distribution of the previously mentioned interstitial artifactual signs to multiple areas of the lung surface, and (3) small subpleural consolidation (not described in this case report1).

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effects of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) on maternal, perinatal and neonatal outcomes by performing a systematic review of available published literature on pregnancies affected by COVID-19. METHODS: We performed a systematic review to evaluate the effects of COVID-19 on pregnancy, perinatal and neonatal outcomes. We conducted a comprehensive literature search using PubMed, EMBASE, the Cochrane Library, China National Knowledge Infrastructure Database and Wan Fang Data until 20 April 2020 (studies were identified through PubMed alert after that date). For the research...

We report our experience on lung ultrasound examination in the diagnosis of coronavirus disease 2019 pneumonia in a pregnant woman. Typical ultrasound features of this pulmonary pathology, including diffuse hyperechoic vertical artifacts with thickened pleural line and “white lung” with patchy distribution, were observed.
