Figure 4. An axial plain CT image of a 77-year-old man who presented with progressive cough and shortness of breath for 2 days. This was performed on day 14 of illness onset. Subpleural smooth reticular opacities at the posterior aspect of the right lower lobe representing interstitial thickening were demonstrated. There were subtle adjacent ground-glass changes, which may be attributed to atelectasis or inflammation. No lung consolidation was detected, and no bronchiolectasis or peribronchial thickening was seen.
