Familiarity with the common imaging findings in patients and especially the radiological manifestations of complications caused by primary infection is of fundamental importance in order to carry out appropriate treatment measures and prevent or reduce the mortality rate in patients. In this review study, some of the most important serological manifestations and cardiopulmonary radiology images in patients with infectious problems and nursing and medical procedures in them are discussed and the common radiological patterns related to them are investigated. The respiratory disease caused by the 2019 corona virus, or the Covid-19 disease, is highly contagious and mainly causes inflammatory lesions in the lungs. Radiology is one of the best diagnostic methods for diagnosing corona and determining the extent of lung involvement. It can also cause damage to the intestines and liver. Epidemiological data show that person-to-person transmission is the main way of spreading this disease, and the rapid spread of the corona virus has created complex challenges for the public health of the world. Currently, timely diagnosis, quarantine and appropriate treatment are the most effective ways to prevent and control it. The current gold standard method for the diagnosis of Covid-19 is to identify the nucleic acids of the corona virus with the help of RT-PCR test. However, lung imaging (radiography and CT scan) plays an important role in diagnosing lung lesions, classifying and determining the stage of the disease, evaluating treatment strategies and differentiating between mixed infections.
