Coronavirus infection spreads rapidly and is transmitted from person to person by airborne and contact-household means. A positive PCR test for Sars-Cov-2 is required for a definitive diagnosis. However, MSCT is a sensitive and specific method of diagnosing coronavirus lung disease as the most common manifestation of infection. In addition, in patients at high risk for Covid-19, signs of viral pneumonia in pulmonary MSCT may precede negative PCR results. on their own experience and observations in the diagnosis of severe respiratory syndrome Sars-Cov-2 draw attention to the need to perform MSCT of the chest in patients at high risk and clinical manifestations of Covid-19 associated pneumonia, despite the initial negative results of PCR tests.
