Article in the Spotlight - The Best of 2020

by Kerry McKee on 2020-12-30T11:45:00-05:00 | Comments

Each month Levy Library showcases the achievements of Mount Sinai faculty and researchers by highlighting an article and its altmetrics. Altmetrics are alternative measures of impact that capture non-traditional data like abstract views, article downloads, and social media activity. Our altmetrics data is provided by the PlumX platform

This month we are highlighting the most cited article of 2020 published by members of the Mount Sinai community. The article, CT imaging features of 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-NCoV) by researchers Xueyan Mei, Zahi A. Fayad PhD, Adam H Jacobi MD, and Yang Yang was cited 717 times since its publication in Radiological Society of North America in April 2020.




In this retrospective case series, chest CT scans of 21 symptomatic patients from China infected with the 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) were reviewed, with emphasis on identifying and characterizing the most common findings. Typical CT findings included bilateral pulmonary parenchymal ground-glass and consolidative pulmonary opacities, sometimes with a rounded morphology and a peripheral lung distribution. Notably, lung cavitation, discrete pulmonary nodules, pleural effusions, and lymphadenopathy were absent. Follow-up imaging in a subset of patients during the study time window often demonstrated mild or moderate progression of disease, as manifested by increasing extent and density of lung opacities.
