Table 1 Chest X-ray and computerized tomography findings of the patients

From: The interrelations of radiologic findings and mechanical ventilation in community acquired pneumonia patients admitted to the intensive care unit: a multicentre retrospective study

n (%) X-ray (n=388) CT (n=69)
Consolidation 346 (89.2%) 55 (79.7%)
Interstitial/patchy involvement 105 (27.1) 31 (44.9%)
Abscess 5 (1.3%) 1* (1.4%)
Cavitation 8 (2.1%) 0**
Involvement >2 lobe 155 (44.7%) 31 (44.9%)
Bilateral involvement 152 (39.3%) 30 (43.5%)
  1. *Only one of five patients with abscess on CXR had CT evaluation, remaining four had not. CT was also positive for abscess for that one patient. **None of the patients with cavitation on CXR had CT evaluation, so comparison or confirmation with CT was unavailable for cavitation.
