As clinical symptoms of patients with different pulmonary diseases can be quite similar, chest radiology is an integral part of the comprehensive and accurate diagnosis of most respiratory diseases. Chest X-ray is the most common and first line of the diagnostic procedure for any respiratory or chest discomfort. Chest ultrasound is 93.4% sensitive and 97.7% specific in the detection of pneumonia and pneumonia-associated complications such as pleural effusion. Chest MRI and chest CT is required for assessing mediastinal lesions and abnormalities of the brachial plexus and chest wall. MRI and CT imaging procedures are advantageous in the morphological and functional assessment of pulmonary hypertension, estimation of cardiac function and assisting in surgical planning. Chest imaging is now used as part of the diagnostic work-up of symptomatic patients suspected of having COVID-19. Chest radiology plays an important role in the detection and management of these COVID-19 patients and has been used to help diagnose the disease, determine its severity, guide treatment and assess treatment response. Apart from imaging procedures like chest CT, chest X-ray and chest MRI, chest radiology procedures also include chest angiography, image guided pleural biopsy, mdct mapping of bronchial artery and percutaneous CT-guided transthoracic lung biopsy.
