COVID-19 Lung Involvement Captured on CT Can Help Predict Mortality Risk

Excerpt from the Article:

Chest CT scans can provide a volumetric analysis of lung consolidation in COVID-19-positive patients, helping providers with care management and better enabling them to pinpoint which patients could die in the hospital from the virus.

In a study published Jan. 6 in the European Journal of Radiology Open, investigators from Michigan State University examined whether the percentage of lung involvement on initial chest CT is directly related to the likelihood of a patient with the virus dying while admitted.

They used radiation therapy planning software to evaluate the impact of lung involvement and discovered that the risk of in-hospital mortality increased with each unit percentage of lung involvement by consolidations. In addition, these patients face a higher likelihood of experiencing major adverse hospital events.
