Abstract
The main purpose of the current manuscript was to highlight the radiology role in diagnosing COVID-19. The routine non-contrast CT chest is the examinations that done to diagnose infections of COVID-19. The scan covers the area of interest for the lung. This is manuscript includes three cases to confirm the COVID-19 infection which already were tested by the respiratory tests of RT-PCR. CT examination was done in axial sections to evaluate the disease severity with imaging features of ground glass opacities (GGO) appearance among the cases and both lung clearly visible affected in the lung window. Some pulmonary consolidative changes with septal thickening and finding of pneumonia. Two of the cases suspected pulmonary embolism (PE), and computed tomography pulmonary angiogram (CTPA) technique was done and the finding shows normal flow of contrast media through main pulmonary trunk with no evidence of PE.
