Abstract

Background. Chest computed tomography (CT) appears to be an important radiological modality for the diagnosis of COVID-19 in adults. Studies comparing the findings of such children with those of other viral infections have not been reported either. The aim of this study was to present comparative imaging findings of 75 pediatric COVID-19 patients and four patients with other viral upper respiratory tract infections. We also aimed to demonstrate the possible association between the radiological and laboratory findings in the COVID group.
