Table 3 CT scores as a function of ICU mortality

From: Protracted viral shedding and viral load are associated with ICU mortality in Covid-19 patients with acute respiratory failure

Variables Overall population (n = 39) Alive at ICU discharge (n = 20) Deceased at ICU discharge (n = 19) p value
Maximal bronchiectasis score 1 [0–3] 0 [0–1] 2 [0–3] < 0.05
Maximal reticulation score 0 [0–1] 0 [0–0] 0 [0–1] 0.15
Any fibroproliferation CT featurea 22 (56%) 8 (40%) 14 (74%) 0.05
Maximal GGO score 14 [11–15] 14 [13–15] 12 [9–15] 0.16
Maximal IPO score 9 [8–11] 8 [7–9] 11 [9–12] < 0.01
  1. Values are median [1st quartile-3rd quartile] or count (percentage)
  2. CT computed tomography, GGO ground glass opacification, ICU intensive care unit, IPO intense parenchymal opacification
  3. aAny fibroproliferation CT feature was defined as occurrence of at least one bronchiectasis score or reticulation score > 0 during ICU stay
