Mount Sinai Physicians the First in U.S. Analyzing Lung Disease in Coronavirus Patients from China

Recommended Posts

Saw this snippet on a health forum I monitor (have lung and heart conditions). Looked worth knowing about in the very unlikely event that one was concerned about the possibility of an infection being the coronavirus - just in case Thai medics have not yet caught onto it.

 

February 26, 2020 — Mount Sinai Health System physicians—the first experts in the country to analyze chest computed tomography (CT) scans of patients from China with coronavirus disease (COVID-19)—have identified specific patterns in the lungs as markers of the disease as it develops over the course of a week and a half. The finding, published in the February issue of Radiology, could lead to quicker diagnosis in patients who come in with possible COVID-19 symptoms, and help keep patients isolated in early stages when the lung disease may not show up in initial scans.
