Radiographic density of computed tomography (CT) images is correlated with the presence of severe cerebral edema and can differentiate this condition from mild traumatic brain injury, providing a novel approach to detect cerebral edema.
The mechanisms of aging increase susceptibility of the distal lung epithelium to influenza infection and delay the lung repair process contributing to the severity of the infection in the elderly.
In a comparison of four non-alcoholic fatty-liver disease (NAFLD) prediction scores, liver fat score (LFS) is the most robust in identifying NAFLD in an American population, suggesting LFS could be used to predict liver-related mortality.
Optimally timed computed tomography (CT) is an accurate screening tool for articular osteochondrosis (OC) in piglets, and could potentially be used in screening and selection against OC through development of future selection techniques based on genetic screening against heritable OC.
This study found that the application of whole-body CT significantly reduces the mortality rate of MTPs and markedly reduces the time spent in the emergency department.
