PURPOSE To determine the weighted average sensitivity of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging in the prospective detection of acute neck injury and to compare these findings with those of a comprehensive conventional radiographic assessment. MATERIALS AND METHODS Conventional radiography and MR imaging were performed in 199 patients presenting to a level 1(More)
The purpose of this study was to develop and evaluate a computerized method of calculating a breast density index (BDI) from digitized mammograms that was designed specifically to model radiologists' perception of breast density. A set of 153 pairs of digitized mammograms (cranio-caudal, CC, and mediolateral oblique, MLO, views) were acquired and(More)
The supine open-mouth odontoid view required in most cervical spine trauma series often is difficult to obtain, especially in the pediatric or uncooperative patient. This retrospective study compared thin-section computed tomography with multiplanar reconstructions and the standard plain film cervical spine examination for evaluation of C1–C2 in a group of(More)
