More than 50% of previously hospitalized survivors of SARS-CoV-2 infection will have abnormality at CT, more commonly in those with more severe acute infection.
■ The most common abnormalities are ground-glass opacity, parenchymal or subpleural bands, reticular abnormality, evidence of fibrotic abnormality, and air trapping.
■ Precise radiologic description is important; the term fibrosis should be reserved for those with clear evidence of fibrosis (traction bronchiectasis or bronchiolectasis, honeycombing, or architectural distortion).
■ Comparison with acute-phase imaging is important to understand the temporal course of abnormality.
■ The long-term outcome of CT changes after COVID-19 and the impact on pulmonary function and quality of life are unknown.
Meanwhile ongoing proof that unvaxxed people died of Covid at 10X the rate of vaxxed people.
In short "We can see your lungs are fucked"
