Cone beam CT Scanning: 3D reconstruction of lung volume involved in pneumonia in a rhesus macaque infected with SARS-CoV-2. Green area represents normal areas of the lung, while red areas indicate pneumonia due to accumulation of white blood cells in airways. The top and bottom images are comparing the percent change in lung hyperdensity (shown by red areas) in SARS-CoV2 infected animals between days 6 of disease progression (representing peak pneumonia) and 12 (near the end of protocol, when animals exhibited signs of recovery). Leftmost panels exhibit full reconstruction of the lungs. Horizontal view of the lung is 2nd from left, front view is 3rd from left and the longitudinal view are the rightmost images shown.
