Wuhan CT scans reliable for coronavirus (COVID-19) diagnosis, limited for differentiation

An American Journal of Roentgenology open-access article by radiologists from Wuhan, China concluded that chest CT had a low rate of misdiagnosis of COVID-19 (3.9%, 2/51) and could help standardize imaging features and rules of transformation for rapid diagnosis; however, CT remains limited for the identification of specific viruses and distinguishing between viruses. The authors also found CT features of COVID-19 that differ from both severe acute respiratory syndrome and Middle East respiratory syndrome.
