assessment of Gynecomastia in the general population and in dialysis, cirrhotic and obese patients.
The D-dimer levels and quantitative CT
values of [V.sub.5], %[V.sub.5], RV diameter, RV/LV diameter ratio and PA/Ao diameter ratio were significantly higher in patients with G-type and A-type pattern than in patients with S-type pattern (Table 2).
For the study, researchers measured bone density using three-dimensional computed tomography (CT) called quantitative CT
and dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry, also called DXA.
No detailed quantitative CT
analysis was performed.

and European EBV-treated patients is the largest study to date using quantitative CT
analysis to estimate the expected outcomes of EBV treatment.
characteristics of the study population are given in Table 2.
, which has been used since the late 1970's, lost popularity due to the higher radiation exposure compared to DXA.
The profusion of cysts and the quantitative CT
scores clearly correlate with impairment on functional tests and clinical conditions.
The primary endpoint in this secondary analysis was change in bone strength as measured using the Food and Drug Administration-approved method of finite element analysis based upon quantitative CT
It covers the history of CT, image processing and representation, data acquisition, image reconstruction, basic instrumentation, image postprocessing and visualization tools, image quality, radiation dose, three-dimensional CT, CT of various body regions, pediatric CT, and applications in CT angiography, CT fluoroscopy, radiation therapy, flat-detector CT, CT screening, breast imaging, quantitative CT
, and portable multislice scanning.
