BACKGROUND Chest traumas are a significant cause of mortality and morbidity, especially in the younger population.Methods Diagnostic imaging plays a key role in their management. Multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) is the most important imaging method in this field. Its advantages include especially high speed and high geometric resolution in any(More)
PURPOSES A ruptured AAA (rAAA) is a common cause of death in males over 60 years of age, and the global mortality from rAAA exceeds 80 %. The pathological processes occurring in the wall of the developing AAA are still unclear. The potential pathophysiological mechanisms underlying aortic aneurysms have been examined by many studies using(More)
BACKGROUND Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a condition associated with accelerated progression of atherosclerosis in affected individuals. Myocardial assessment using exercise testing in such patients, however, is often difficult to perform. Our objective was to determine the factors associated with severe coronary stenosis using computed tomography (CT)(More)
The prospective study included 54 asymptomatic high-risk patients who underwent coronary CT angiography (CTA) and regadenoson-induced stress CT perfusion (rsCTP). Diagnostic accuracy of significant stenosis (≥50%) determination was evaluated for CTA alone and CTA + rsCTP in 27 patients referred to ICA due to the positive rsCTP findings. Combined evaluation(More)
