ABSTRACT

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an illness caused by a novel coronavirus that has rapidly escalated into a global pandemic leading to an urgent medical effort to better characterize this disease biologically, clinically, and by imaging. In this review, we present the current approach to imaging of COVID-19 pneumonia. We focus on the appropriate use of thoracic imaging modalities to guide clinical management. We also describe radiologic findings that are considered typical, atypical, and generally not compatible with COVID-19. Furthermore, we review imaging examples of COVID-19 imaging mimics, such as organizing pneumonia, eosinophilic pneumonia, and other viral infections.
