Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Basic Science
Official Title: Total-Body Parametric 18F-FDG PET of COVID-19
Actual Study Start Date : May 10, 2021
Estimated Primary Completion Date : February 22, 2022
Estimated Study Completion Date : February 22, 2023

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: COVID-19 patients Device: uEXPLORER/mCT
Each participant will undergo two 18F-FDG PET/CT scans, one at baseline and one at 4- month (+/- 2 weeks) follow-up.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. BAB permeability assessed [ Time Frame: 1 imaging visit up to 60 minutes ]
    Evaluating if there is a change in BAB permeability assessed by lung FDG K1 for patients with COVID 19

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. 4 month follow-up PET/CT scan [ Time Frame: 1 imaging visit up to 60 minutes ]
    Evaluate the change in the scans between baseline scan and 4-month follow-up scan by assessing the pulmonary blood-air barrier permeability to glucose
