Varicella pneumonia is a type of viral pneumonia. It is a common cause of multiple small round calcific lung lesions. Varicella-zoster virus most commonly causes self-limited benign disease (chickenpox) in children. However, in adults it tends to cause significant complications including varicella pneumonia . Because of the clinical manifestations and the radiologic aspects, viral pneumonia was included in the broad.. Covid-19 is a viral disease caused by SARS-CoV-2 1. Chest CT is recommended in patients with suspected COVID-19 pneumonia because it may show characteristics findings and extent of the infection, as well as follow up of the disease 1,2,3,4 Two hundred five patients with positive respiratory pathogen panel results for viral pneumonia and CT findings consistent with or highly suspicious for pneumonia, according to original radiologic interpretation within 7 days of each other, were identified from Rhode Island Hospital in Providence, RI The radiograph still remains the reference standard for a medical diagnosis of pneumonia, and also helps to differentiate between bacterial and viral pneumonia. However, a combination of clinical symptoms, exam findings, and imaging is the best way to uncover the most likely culprit. 3,
Interstitial pneumonia (Figure 2) is typically associated with viral infections such as influenza virus and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) [ 29 - 31 ]. Few pathogens are associated with characteristic CXR abnormalities The radiologic pattern of a viral pneumonia depends on both the virulence of the organism and host defenses. 50 The mildest cases of viral infection are confined to the upper airways and manifest no radiologic abnormality. The earliest radiologic abnormalities are the signs of bronchitis and bronchiolitis, which may include peribronchial. Background: A cluster of patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pneumonia were discharged from hospitals in Wuhan, China. We aimed to determine the cumulative percentage of complete radiological resolution at each time point, to explore the relevant affecting factors, and to describe the chest CT findings at different time points after hospital discharge Tomás Franquet MD (2011) Imaging of pulmonary viral pneumonia.

What is viral pneumonia? Viral pneumonia is a lung infection caused by a virus, such as influenza. You can get a viral infection by breathing in the virus or by touching something that has the virus on it. Viral pneumonia can develop if a virus in your body travels to your lungs Influenza viruses were responsible for most adult viral pneumonia. Presently, coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has evolved into serious global pandemic. COVID-19 outbreak is expected to persist in months to come that will be synchronous with the influenza season. The management, prognosis, and pr Viral pneumonia has a radiologic pattern consisting of poorly defined nodules, air-space nodules (of 4-10 mm), patchy areas of peribronchial ground glass opacity, and air-space consolidation. Hyperinflation is also commonly present because of the associated bronchiolitis. Pneumonia could progress as seen by the rapid confluence of consolidation. The novel coronavirus causes viral pneumonia characterized by lower respiratory tract symptoms and 19severe inflammatory response syndrome. Studies have suggested that the virus has a clinical course with the stepwise progression of clinical signs and symptoms and radiologic alterations. In the present case report, we discuss two patients who presented with mild symptoms and CT imaging not. The aim of the current study was to compare the chest radiographic representations among various types of viral pneumonia, to identify radiographic diagnostic indicators that may predispose to viral pneumonia and to assess whether any particular abnormal radiographic findings are associated with certain specific viral pathogens
Further, it identifies how Covid-19 is different from other pneumonia. They implemented their proposed model for two and three class classification on two publically available databases. The model is trained and tested on a small dataset, which contains normal (310), bacterial pneumonia (330), viral pneumonia (327), and Covid-19 (284) images The radiology information system was retrospectively reviewed to determine whether a chest CT scan had occurred within 72 hours of assay collection. The medical records of subjects with CT images were reviewed in detail to identify those with symptoms of LRTI. Rarely, viral pneumonia appeared as unifocal regions of ground-glass opacity or.
bacterial pneumonia; viral pneumonia; community acquired pneumonia; children; Childhood community acquired pneumonia is a common illness. Several bacteria and viruses and their combinations can cause the infection, but there is a lack of rapid and commercially available laboratory tests for most pathogens which may explain why the aetiology is rarely established in clinical practice and why. Objectives To investigate the clinical and chest CT characteristics of COVID-19 pneumonia and explore the radiological differences between COVID-19 and influenza. Materials and methods A total of 122 patients (61 men and 61 women, 48 ± 15 years) confirmed with COVID-19 and 48 patients (23 men and 25 women, 47 ± 19 years) confirmed with influenza were enrolled in the study. Thin-section CT. Case Discussion. This case illustrates and shows the most common findings of influenza A pneumonia a combination of multifocal ground-glass opacities (GGO) and irregular consolidations, mainly along and around the bronchovascular bundles.. Real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) after respiratory swab was positive for influenza A virus RNA.. The patient was put under isolation and received.
Objective: to evaluate the clinical and radiological features of viral pneumonia caused by influenza A (H1N1) in 2015-2016.Material and methods. The study.. However, CT manifestations of COVID-19 pneumonia and influenza virus pneumonia have a large amount of overlap, such that even with the characteristics evaluated using AI software, no significant differences were detected. Distinguishing between these two types of viral pneumonia with imaging alone is difficult James C. Reed MD, in Chest Radiology (Seventh Edition), 2019. Viral Pneumonia. Viral pneumonias are best known for producing a diffuse interstitial pattern—usually a fine reticular or fine nodular pattern—but fulminant cases may also lead to diffuse air space consolidations. The appearance varies depending on the severity, ranging from. None of the viral etiologies of pneumonia result in pathognomonic findings on chest radiographs, and bacterial pneumonia cannot be differentiated from viral pneumonia based on radiographic findings. Of concern was the fact that some patients with SARS had negative findings on chest radiographs but infiltrates were seen on chest CT In the first release, we have released 219 COVID-19, 1341 normal, and 1345 viral pneumonia chest X-ray (CXR) images. In the first update, we have increased the COVID-19 class to 1200 CXR images. In the 2nd update, we have increased the database to 3616 COVID-19 positive cases along with 10,192 Normal, 6012 Lung Opacity (Non-COVID lung infection.
The COVID-19 viral disease is now officially a pandemic, as the World Health Organization announced on March 10, 2020. Chest CT has been widely used as an effective tool for diagnosing patients with COVID-19 pneumonia. However, the diversified CT patterns of COVID-19 pneumonia made it difficult to accurately and quickly assess the clinical.

Clinically, viral pneumonia can be divided in adults into two main categories according to the host immunity and virulence of the organism: atypical pneumonia in otherwise normal hosts and viral pneumonia in immuno-compromised hosts .The typical pneumonia is usually mild; however, it could attain severe progressive course and could be fatal even in one day Introduction. Viral pneumonia is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in the USA and around the world. The causative organisms for pneumonia vary greatly between studies depending on population studied, the diagnostic method used to detect pathogens and the seasonal distribution of the viruses.1-3 Viral pneumonia is well described in immunocompromised patients, especially among patients.
Viral pneumonia in adults can be classified into two clinical groups: so-called atypical pneumonia in otherwise healthy hosts and viral pneumonia in immunocompromised hosts. Influenza virus types A and B cause most cases of viral pneumonia in immunocompetent adults. Viral pneumonias in adults : Radiologic and pathologic findings. / Kim, Eun. Bacterial pneumonia is commonly encountered in clinical practice. Radiology plays a prominent role in the evaluation of pneumonia. Chest radiography is the most commonly used imaging tool in pneumonias due to its availability and excellent cost benefit ratio. CT should be used in unresolved cases or when complications of pneumonia are suspected. However, the viral load collected from the upper respiratory tract does not directly reflect infection of the lower respiratory tract (i.e., viral pneumonia). As a method to identify viral pneumonia, radiologic imaging studies such as CXRs or computed tomography (CT) should be performed
The COVID-19 pandemic has led to an unprecedented surge in hospitalised patients with viral pneumonia. The most severely affected patients are older men, individuals of black and Asian minority ethnicity and those with comorbidities. COVID-19 is also associated with an increased risk of hypercoagulability and venous thromboembolism. The overwhelming majority of patients admitted to hospital.

From 95 symptomatic patients confirmed with COVID-19 by RT-PCR from 1 May to 14 July 2020 in Dallah Hospital, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, CT angiography was done for 25 patients suspected to have pulmonary embolism and have no. Viral pneumonia is caused by a virus. The major features of the lungs include the bronchi, the bronchioles and the alveoli. The alveoli are the microscopic blood vessel-lined sacks in which oxygen and carbon dioxide gas are exchanged. Air is breathed in through the nasal passageways, travels through the trachea and bronchi to the lungs

A total of 205 patients with positive Respiratory Pathogen Panel for viral pneumonia and CT findings consistent with or highly suspicious for pneumonia by original radiology interpretation within 7 days of each other were identified from Rhode Island Hospital in Providence, RI Summary. Pneumonia is a respiratory infection characterized by inflammation of the alveolar space and/or the interstitial tissue of the lungs.In industrialized nations, it is the leading infectious cause of death.Pneumonia is most commonly transmitted via aspiration of airborne pathogens (primarily bacteria, but also viruses and fungi) but may also result from the aspiration of stomach contents nd 58 ordinary cases were enrolled. The chest CT images and clinical data of them were reviewed and compared. The risk factors associated with disease severity were analyzed. Results Compared with the ordinary patients, the severe/critical patients had older ages, higher incidence of comorbidities, cough, expectoration, chest pain, and dyspnea. The incidences of consolidation, linear opacities. Viral Pneumonia. This is just a refresher of how lungs look like in cases of a severe viral pneumonia. Findings on both X-ray and CT are nonspecific for COVID-19 but those are the findings we can see. The important factor is progression of the lung changes and diffuse distribution in both lungs Objective The clinical characteristics and chest imaging findings of viral pneumonia and several interstitial lung diseases (ILDs) overlap, and viral pneumonia may be underrecognized and misdiagnosed as certain ILDs.To clarify the frequency of viral pneumonia among patients with acute progressive clinical courses that required a differential diagnosis between ILDs and pneumonia, and to.
Lipoid pneumonia is uncommon and, although it is difficult to determine the precise clinical incidence, autopsy series have reported a frequency of only 1.0-2.5% .However, it is important to be aware of the various radiologic manifestations of lipoid pneumonia because, in the appropriate clinical setting, these findings can be diagnostic Utilizing Deep Learning to detect COVID-19 and Viral Pneumonia from x-ray images Topics python computer-vision deep-learning artificial-intelligence neural-networks radiology x-rays covid-1 How can a radiologist tell the difference between viral pneumonia and bacterial from a single CXR?
