Complications of influenza and ARI. What are the complications of CT? More than 90% of all infectious diseases in the world are flu and ORD. Both can occur in a person regardless of gender or age. Influenza begins actively from the first days, the ARD can sway longer and manifest itself a few days after the receipt of pathogens. Often the symptoms of the disease allow you to remain in the working schedule and carry everything “on your feet.” But it is worth remembering that such an attitude towards one’s health can lead to negative consequences in the form of complications. What can be complications:
  1. 1. The upper respiratory tract. Otitis, sinusitis, sinusitis – serious diseases that can be among the complications. Their treatment should not be delayed in the far box, as this can lead to irreversible processes.
  2. 2. The nervous system. It is also susceptible to viruses. This can lead to encephalitis and neuralgia. Permanent fatigue, apathy and sleep disorders can also occur. Meningitis should be especially feared.
  3. 3. Lightweight. Occasionally triggered flu or ARD can cause bronchitis or pneumonia. The latter may be fatal. Shortness of breath, general weakness – most often these are the first signs of such a complication. If left untreated, prolonged illness can trigger asthma.
  4. 4. Cardiovascular system. The heart often takes a beating. Such shaking can cause serious problems with his work, such as pericarditis and myocarditis. Arterial blockage and impaired integrity of the circulatory system may occur.
  5. 5. The immune system. We also should not forget about the immune system, which will be weakened after viruses for a long time, which can cause increased susceptibility and development of other diseases.
Flu and ARD can exacerbate chronic illnesses. But sometimes complications can develop in the body without much visibility and pronounced symptoms. To identify the focus of complications and to get a clearer picture of what is happening, it is worth paying attention to CT-diagnosis. It allows you to get the most informative information about the general state and problems.

What a CT scan can reveal:

  1. • the presence of blockage or narrowing of the arteries;
  2. • check the general condition of the heart;
  3. • the condition of the sinus sinus, its anatomical structure;
  4. • condition of sinus sinuses, specificity of their structure;
  5. • the presence of inflammatory processes in the lungs;
  6. • impaired pulmonary tissue density;
  7. • general condition of lungs;
  8. • disorders in the structure of the brain;
  9. • impaired tissue density (possibly with edema, damage to the nervous system and vessels, hemorrhage);
  10. • condition of vessels.
Computed tomography can detect the presence of dangerous complications and therefore take the necessary steps to eliminate them. Such diagnostics give the most accurate three-dimensional picture of an organ that allows to study all details. After ORD and flu, lungs are most at risk. The CT scan makes cut-away shots that are most likely to detect abnormalities that most often occur as seals or enlargements of cavities. Often assigned a contrast for better visibility of all tissues.
