Covid-19 Research: A new research study by medical scientists from the University of Cincinnati and three Italian medical institutions involving the detailed review of neuroimaging and neurological symptoms in patients with COVID-19 may shed light on the SARS-Coronavirus's impact on the central nervous system.


 
The research results, published in the medical journal Radiology, reveal that altered mental status and stroke are the most common neurological symptoms in COVID-19 patients, which the researchers say could help doctors notice warning signs earlier. https://pubs.rsna.org/doi/10.1148/radiol.2020201933
 
Lead researcher Dr Abdelkader Mahammedi, MD, Assistant Professor of Radiology at University of Cincinnati and a UC Health neuroradiologist told Thailand Medical News, "Studies have described the spectrum of chest imaging features of COVID-19, but only a few case reports have described COVID-19 associated neuroimaging findings. To date, this is the largest and first study in literature that characterizes the neurological symptoms and neuroimaging features in COVID-19 patients. These newly discovered patterns could help doctors better and sooner recognize associations with COVID-19 and possibly provide earlier interventions."
 
The study team investigated neurological symptoms and imaging findings in patients from three major institutions in Italy: University of Brescia, Brescia; University of Eastern Piedmont, Novara; and University of Sassari, Sassari. Italy was the second epicenter of
