Figure 2. Chest computed tomographic images of a 70-year-old patient with moderate acute respiratory distress syndrome due to COVID-19-associated pneumonia. (A) Chest computed tomographic images obtained on the day of admission revealed bilateral subpleural ground-glass opacities. (B) Images taken on the fourth day after intubation show initial shrinking of ground-glass opacity shadows and their subsequent spreading. The shadows resemble those in diffuse alveolar damage. (C) Images taken on the 25th day before discharge reveal the absence of ground-glass opacities.
