Among all neonatal diseases, neonatal pneumonia is one of the common diseases. Multi-slice spiral CT and chest X-ray imaging images are used to diagnose and study neonatal pneumonia in hospitals and treat neonates in China. Pneumonia is of great significance. This article retrospectively analyzes the CT and chest X-ray images of neonatal pneumonia, and divides the cases into two groups according to their invasiveness: pre-invasive and micro-invasive group, invasive group, and the size of the air-containing cavity Analyze the multiple occurrence and distribution position; observe the air-containing cavity structure morphology under the microscope. All patients were scanned by the chest multi-slice spiral CT scanner, and the 1m or 0.625m thin-slice images were sent to the post-processing workstation for statistics and analysis of relevant data. This article discusses the entire calculation process from projection data preprocessing to spiral interpolation to image reconstruction of neonatal pneumonia. The effects of the two interpolation modes on the reconstruction results are compared. A practical multi-layer spiral cone beam algorithm is given. An important aspect of the performance of neonatal pneumonia image performance and its generation mechanism are analyzed. As an equipment manufacturer, it provides a basis for the improvement and correction of machine performance. This article analyzes the real-time fluorescence quantitative PCR value of neonatal Mycoplasma pneumoniae and its gender, Relevance of age, heat history, heat type, shortness of breath, wheezing, atelectasis, pleural effusion and ventilator ventilation treatment, and the study subjects were divided into two groups according to whether they were treated with macrolide antibiotics. After heterogeneity, the relationship between the severity of the disease and the pathogen load and inflammation in the two groups was studied. The results of the study show that RSV is the most common viral pathogen of neonatal pneumonia, and the risk of repeated wheezing in children with RSV and Klebsiella pneumoniae is continuously increasing within 3 years of age, but the occurrence between the two There was no statistical difference in risk.
