Abstract
The CoronaVirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic continues raging across the world well into its second year. High Resolution Computed Tomography (HRCT) has become an extremely valuable tool in diagnosis of the disease, assessing disease severity and prognosis for patients and also as a valuable adjunct to RT-PCR. Many of the HRCT signs of COVID-19 are non-specific and overlapping with other viral pneumonias, however a few signs though uncommon, are being found to be relatively diagnostic for COVID-19. We present such a new diagnostic sign which we call as the ‘Corona sign’ after the disease causing it.
