Quantative computerized tomography assessment of lung density as a predictor of postoperative pulmonary morbidity in patients with lung cancer
Background: The aim of this study was to evaluate the pulmonary reserve of the patients via preoperativequantitative computerized tomography (CT) and to determine if these preoperative quantitativemeasurements could predict ...
Extraordinary presentation of elastofibroma dorsi after a thoracotomy procedure
Elastofibroma dorsi is a reactive pseudotumor of connective tissue, typically located in the infrascapular region. Awareness of this benign entity is crucial for radiologists, as well as clinicians, to avoid misdiagnosis ...
The importance of costoclavicular space on possible compression of the subclavian artery in the thoracic outlet region: a radio-anatomical study
OBJECTIVES: The purposes of this study were to identify possible compression points along the transit route of the subclavian artery and to provide a detailed anatomical analysis of areas that are involved in the surgical ...
Should the cut-off value of D-dimer be elevated to exclude pulmonary embolism in acute exacerbation of COPD?
Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the D-dimer levels in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) exacerbation with and without pulmonary embolism (PE) and to attempt to define a new cut-off ...
Incidence of pulmonary embolism during COPD exacerbation

Multi-regional Adaptive Image Compression (AIC) for hip fractures in pelvis radiography
High resolution digital medical images are stored in DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) format that requires high storage space in database. Therefore reducing the image size while maintaining diagnostic ...
Twinkling artifact on color Doppler ultrasound: an advantage or a pitfall?
The twinkling artifact (TA) or color comet-tail artifact is characterized by a rapidly changing mixture of red and blue color Doppler signals. Even though many diseases and clinical conditions have been shown to ...
Do C-reactive protein level, white blood cell count, and pain location guide the selection of patients for computed tomography imaging in non-traumatic acute abdomen?
The value of abdominal computed tomography in non-traumatic abdominal pain has been well established. On the other hand, to manage computed tomography, appropriateness has become more of an issue as a result of the ...
Correlation between physical measurements and observer evaluations of image quality in digital chest radiography
Purpose: The aim of this paper was to investigate the relationship between the physical and subjec-tive (observer) image quality metrics in digital chest radiography.Methods: Five digital radiography systems, four with ...
