 Can CT test replace nucleic acid test? Cheng Zhenshun: fast CT diagnosis


Some netizens asked whether it is possible to replace nucleic acid detection with CT detection as soon as possible to speed up the treatment?

(function() {(window. Slotbydup = window. Slotbydup| []). Push ({ID: u5811557, container: ssp_, async: true});)) (); Cheng Zhenshun, director of respiratory and Critical Medicine Department of Central South Hospital of Wuhan University, said that through clinical experience, the coincidence rate between CT diagnosis and final diagnosis is very high. Although nucleic acid detection is indeed the means of final diagnosis, there are false negatives in clinical practice. Some patients have false negatives The nucleic acid of the patient is negative, but he is actually a new type of coronavirus pneumonia. With the progress of the disease, Yang may appear. In addition, due to the large amount of nucleic acid detection and the long detection cycle, CT can see the characteristics and results of imaging in a few minutes, which is relatively intuitive and fast in diagnosis. Cheng Zhenshun said that in addition, many patients have mild clinical symptoms, or even no symptoms. For high-risk groups, such as some medical staff and close contacts, CT can achieve the role of early detection, early isolation and early treatment, which can indeed speed up the diagnosis and treatment. For the suspected patients with new coronavirus pneumonia, it is found by CT that they can be isolated in a centralized way. For the patients, they can be treated actively in the early stage, and at the same time, they can control the source of infection. It is suggested that CT can be a very intuitive and effective detection method for suspected patients. Source: responsible editor of surging news: Li Congfu b11284
