    Objectives: To evaluate the prevalence SERO of acute pulmonary embolism HP pulmonary embolism MESHD (APE) in non-hospitalized COVID-19 patients referred to CT pulmonary angiography (CTPA) by Emergency Department.Methods: From March 14 to April 6, 2020, 72 non-hospitalized patients referred by Emergency Department to CTPA for COVID-19 pneumonia HP pneumonia MESHD were retrospectively identified. Relevant clinical and laboratory data and CT scan findings were collected for each patient. CTPA scans were reviewed by two radiologists to determinate the presence or absence of APE MESHD. Clinical classification, lung involvement of COVID-19 pneumonia HP pneumonia MESHD and CT total severity score were compared between APE group and Non-APE group.Results: APE was identified in 13 (18%) CTPA scans. The mean age TRANS and D-dimer of patients from APE group were higher in comparison with Non-APE group (74.4 vs. 59.6 years, p=0.008 and 7.29 vs. 3.29 µg/ml, p=0.011). There was no significant difference between APE and Non-APE groups concerning clinical type, COVID-19 pneumonia HP pneumonia MESHD lung lesions (ground-glass opacity: 85 vs. 97%; consolidation: 69 vs. 68%; crazy paving: 38% vs. 37%; linear reticulation: 69 vs. 78%), CT severity score (6.3 vs. 7.1, p=0.365), quality of CTPA (1.8 vs. 2.0, p=0.518) and pleural effusion HP pleural effusion MESHD (38% vs. 19%, p=0.146).Conclusions: Non-hospitalized patients with COVID-19 pneumonia HP pneumonia MESHD referred to CT-scan by Emergency Departments are at risk of APE. Presence of APE was not limited to severe or critical clinical type of COVID-19 pneumonia HP pneumonia MESHD.

    Background: Imagery techniques have been used as essential parts of diagnostic workup for patients suspected for 2019-nCoV infection MESHD, Multiple studies have reported the features of chest computed tomography (CT) scans among a number of 2019-nCoV patients. Method: Study Identification was carried out in databases (PubMed, Embase and Cochrane Library) to identify published studies examining the diagnosis, the 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV). Heterogeneity among reported prevalence SERO was assessed by computing p-values of Cochrane Q-test and I2-statics. The pooled prevalence SERO of treatment failure was carried out with a fixed effects meta-analysis model, generating the pooled 95% confidence interval. A random-effect model was used to pool the results since this model could incorporate the heterogeneity of the studies and therefore proved a more generalized result. Results: According to the combined results of meta-analysis, the total 55% of corona patients were males TRANS. The mean age TRANS of the patients was 41.31 (34.14, 48.47). Two prevalent clinical symptoms between patients were fever HP fever MESHD, cough HP cough MESHD with prevalence SERO of 85%, and 62%, respectively. Either Ground Glass Opacity GGO or consolidation was seen in 86% but 14% had NO GGO or consolidation. The other rare CT symptoms were pericardial effusion HP, and pleural effusion HP pleural effusion MESHD with 4, 5, 7% prevalence SERO, respectively. The most prevalent event was Either GGO or consolidation in 85% of patients. Conclusion: The most CT-scan abnormality is Either Ground Glass Opacity GGO or consolidation however in few patients none of them might be observed, so trusting in just CT findings will lead to miss some patients.
