World’s brightest x-rays reveal COVID-19’s damage to the body
A new scanning technique delivers exquisitely detailed images—and could revolutionize the study of human anatomy.
This HiP-CT scan reveals the vasculature within a lung lobe from a 54-year-old male who died of COVID-19. HiP-CT scans show that in severe COVID-19 cases, the lungs’ blood vessels are severely damaged: Here, airspaces are colored with cyan, open blood vessels are colored in red, and blocked, damaged blood vessels are colored in yellow.
