More Informations Regarding the Laboratory and the Radiographic Findings of COVID-19 and the Prognostic value regarding the Labrotarey Findings:
Regarding the Laboratory Findings:
Lymphopenia is the most common laboratory finding in COVID-19 and is found in as many as 83% of hospitalized patients. Lymphopenia, neutrophilia, elevated serum alanine aminotransferase and aspartate aminotransferase levels, elevated lactate dehydrogenase, high CRP and high ferritin levels may be associated with greater illness severity. Also Elevated D-dimer and lymphopenia have been associated with mortality. Procalcitonin may increase among those admitted to an ICU. Patients with critical illness had high plasma levels of inflammatory markers like (ESR and CRP) suggesting potential immune dysregulation. Labrotarey abnormalities commonly observed among hospitalized patients with COVID-19-associated hypercoagulopathy state which lead to increased risk of both venous and arterial thrombosis of both large and small vessels include:
Mild thrombocytopenia, increased D-dimer level, increased fibrin degradation products and prolonged prothrombin time.

Regarding the Radiographic Findings:
The Chest X-Ray of patients with COVID-19 typically demonstrate bilateral air-space consolidation, though patients may have unremarkable chest X-Ray early in the disease. the Chest CT images typically demonstrate bilateral peripheral ground glass opacities, given the variability in chest imagings findings, chest X-Ray or Chest CT alone is not recommended for the diagnosis of COVID-19. The American College of Radiology also does not recommend CT Chest for screening or as a first-line investigation for diagnosis of COVID-19.
