A controlled randomized study of endoscopic evacuation versus medical treatment was performed in 100 patients with spontaneous supratentorial intracerebral (subcortical, putaminal, and thalamic) hematomas. Patients with aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, brain tumors, or head injuries were excluded. Criteria for inclusion were as follows: patients' age(More)
A survey of 82 institutions worldwide was done in 1995 to identify large picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) in clinical operation. A continuing strong trend toward the creation and operation of large PACS was identified. In the 15 months since the first such survey the number of clinical large PACS went from 13 to 23, almost a doubling in(More)
Toward the end of 1997 vendors were succeeding in installing picture, archiving and communication systems (PACS) in larger numbers. It was hard to separate fact from fiction at times. This survey was undertaken by 2 members of the academic community to confirm what was operational, how well the installed systems worked, and what they were doing. Fax(More)
In a discussion starting from Haux et al. it is asked, if a safe and controllable technology to implement the patient centered health record is available and which measures must be taken to insure the safety of the record-these include legislation, education, technical measures etc. In addition to the goals set forward in the support for patient empowerment(More)
In 9 patients who were admitted for alcoholic delirium the acid-base parameters, lactate, pyruvate and electrolytes in the cerebrospinal fluid and in the blood were determined 1. at the climax of the condition, 2. in the course of 3 days, and 3. after the delirium tremens had subsided. The marked lactate and pyruvate increase and the increased(More)
The volumes of the cerebral tissue, and internal and external cerebrospinal fluid spaces were calculated from the computer tomograms of 28 patients. On the basis of their different absorption coefficients, cerebral tissue and CSF space were outlined and their volumes calculated by computer. The ratio of cerebral tissue volume to CSF space volume was(More)
We have investigated serum urea, uric acid, and creatinin crealinine levels in 39 patients with craniocerebral trauma. The most impressive observation was a change in serum urea, which was found significantly increased up to 237 mg% on the seventh day (mean value) after severe injury, and turned out to be of great prognostic value. Patients with a serum(More)
In the Department of Radiology of the University of Graz a PACS which includes CT-scanners as modalities was installed. Parts (communication and archiving) of this PACS are used in routine work. Summarizing our experiences from routine work we discuss a minimal set of software requirements that a PACS must meet to allow a fast and non-problematic operation(More)
This is the report of a worldwide survey of 82 institutions done to identify large scale picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) in clinical operation in 1995. This survey found a continuing strong trend toward the creation and operation of large PACS. In the 15 months since the first such survey, the number of clinical large PACS went from 13 to(More)
