So far there are more than 80,000 cases of the virus now known as covid-19, spreading to at least 49 countries. The death count surpassing 2,800. And now the U.S. Is dealing with a dangerous new development. At The Mount Sinai Hospital radiologists like Michael Chung, MD, assistant professor of diagnostic, molecular and interventional radiology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, now have access to scans of infected patients. “This patient tested positive and was symptomatic with fever and cough. But within days the scans change. The rounded appearance as well as how it's in the outer portion of the lungs. In the chest wall.”
