The purpose of our study was to describe the radiographic and CT findings in patients with pulmonary infections caused by Mycobacterium abscessus, one of the more common rapidly growing nontuberculous mycobacteria that cause lung disease. The main radiologic and CT manifestations of M. abscessus lung infection are bilateral small nodular opacities, bronchiectasis, and cavity formation.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
