Core Tip

Core Tip: This is a retrospective study to evaluate the effect of vaccination status on CORADS and computed tomography (CT) severity score in hospitalized coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) patients. Accordingly, as a result of the comparisons between the groups, the CT severity score levels of the unvaccinated patients were significantly higher than the other groups. As the vaccination rates increased, the rate of typical COVID-19 findings on CT was found to be significantly lower.
