Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) has caused a large number of related deaths and multiple healthcare associated outbreaks [1,2,3,4]. Investigators have summarized the clinical characteristics of patients with initial onset [3,4], in which, some had atypical clinical manifestations, e.g., severe patients merely had moderate or low fever or even no fever [5], while some mild patients may not have pneumonia and only had low fever or mild fatigue [5,6]. One report revealed that no radiographic or CT abnormalities were found in 17.9% of non-severe patients and in 2.9% of severe patients [6].

Drug Res (Stuttg) DOI: 10.1055/a-1217-2397The current outbreak of novel Coronavirus Disease-2019 (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is a major pandemic situation and a catastrophe for humans. COVID-19 is a severe infectious disease particularly of the respiratory system characterized by fatal complications such as severe acute respiratory distress syndrome (SARS), pneumonia, cardiac arrhythmia, kidney failure/ multiple organ failure and even death. Since its discovery, the SARS-CoV-2 has spread across 213 countries or territories, causing mor...

Authors: Jung HK, Kim JY, Lee MS, Lee JY, Park JS, Hyun M, Kim HA, Kwon YS, Choi SW, Moon SM, Suh YJ Abstract OBJECTIVE: We investigated the prevalence of pneumonia in novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) patients using chest radiographs to identify the characteristics of those with initially negative chest radiographs, who were positive for pneumonia on follow-up. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Retrospective cohort data of 236 COVID-19 patients were reviewed. Chest radiography was performed on admission, with serial radiographs obtained until discharge. The 'positive conversion group' was defined as patients whos...

Halo, Reversed Halo, or Both? Atypical Computed Tomography Manifestations of Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Pneumonia: The "Double Halo Sign". Korean J Radiol. 2020 Jul 17;: Authors: Poerio A, Sartoni M, Lazzari G, Valli M, Morsiani M, Zompatori M Abstract The epidemic of 2019 novel coronavirus, later named as coronavirus disease (COVID-19), began in Wuhan, China in December 2019 and has spread rapidly worldwide. Early diagnosis is crucial for the management of the patients with COVID-19, but the gold standard diagnostic test for this infection, the reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reac...

Authors: Hwang EJ, Kim H, Yoon SH, Goo JM, Park CM Abstract OBJECTIVE: To describe the experience of implementing a deep learning-based computer-aided detection (CAD) system for the interpretation of chest X-ray radiographs (CXR) of suspected coronavirus disease (COVID-19) patients and investigate the diagnostic performance of CXR interpretation with CAD assistance. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this single-center retrospective study, initial CXR of patients with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 were investigated. A commercialized deep learning-based CAD system that can identify various abnormalities on CXR was impl...

In this study, we describe our experience regarding the necessary protective measures that need to be taken during ophthalmic examination and treatment. The authors reviewed the clinical work arrangements during the epidemic situation at the Eye Hospital of Wenzhou Medical University in China and analyzed the prevention and control measures that were applied during the laser corneal refractive surgery process. The comprehensive protection protocol, which was established throughout the entire process, included both horizontal (medical staff-patient, medical staff-medical staff, and patient-patient) and vertical (preoperativ...
