Computer-aided detection (CAD) systems, which automatically detect and indicate location of potential abnormalities in scan digital images, have the capacity to increase the accuracy of the radiologists’ interpretations and finding. This paper presents an efficient new CAD .for automatic and accurate detection and quantification of Abdominal Aortic(More)
Digital image analysis technology suffers from imperfection, imprecision and vagueness of the input data and its propagation in all individual components of the technology including image enhancement, segmentation and pattern recognition. Furthermore, a Medical Digital Image Analysis System (MDIAS) such as computer aided detection (CAD) technology deals(More)
BACKGROUND The aims of the study were to evaluate the prevalence of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) among patients presenting with atypical chest pain who are evaluated for acute aortic syndrome (AAS) or pulmonary embolism (PE) with computed tomoangiography (CTA) and discuss the rationale for the use of triple rule-out (TRO) protocol for triaging these(More)
The vast majority of superior vena cava (SVC) syndromes are of malignant causes, but with growing use of indwelling central catheters and implanted cardiac devices, benign SVC syndromes are becoming more frequent. The main objective of this study is to evaluate long term outcome in patients treated for benign SVC syndrome by endovascular techniques.(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine inter-session and intra/inter-individual variations of the attenuations of aortic blood/myocardium with MDCT in the context of calcium scoring. To evaluate whether these variations are dependent on patients' characteristics. METHODS Fifty-four volunteers were evaluated with calcium scoring non-enhanced CT. We measured attenuations(More)
Peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) use continues to increase, leading to the development of a blind bedside technique (BST) for placement. The aim of our study was to compare the BST with the fluoroscopically guided technique (FGT), with specific regard to catheter tip position (CTP). One hundred eighty patients were randomized to either the BST(More)
To report our experience using a multilevel patient management algorithm to direct transarterial embolization (TAE) in managing spontaneous intramuscular hematoma (SIMH). From May 2006 to January 2014, twenty-seven patients with SIMH had been referred for TAE to our Radiology department. Clinical status and coagulation characteristics of the patients are(More)
Computer-Aided Tomography Angiography (CTA) images are the standard for assessing Peripheral artery disease (PAD). This paper presents a Computer Aided Detection (CAD) and Computer Aided Measurement (CAM) system for PAD. The CAD stage detects the arterial network using a 3D region growing method and a fast 3D morphology operation. The CAM stage aims to(More)
