COVID-19 On a CT Scan

Video by Ron Swanger, MD, RDC radiologist

As the world is dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, we thought we’d show you a different perspective on the virus from a radiologist point of view. In this video, Dr. Swanger shows you a CT scan of the lungs of a patient who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 (this example is not of a local patient). What you will see is a rapidly developing pneumonia that begins at the bottom of the lungs at the periphery which progresses over a matter of a few days to fill almost all the lung threatening the ability to breath.
