PURPOSE To determine the accuracy and repeatability of ultrasonography (US) with the ellipsoid formula in calculating the renal volume. MATERIALS AND METHODS The renal volumes in 20 volunteers aged 19-51 years were determined by using US with the ellipsoid formula and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging with the voxel-count method by two independent observers(More)
A 3D model-based approach for quantification of vascular morphology from several MRA acquisition protocols was evaluated. Accuracy, reproducibility, and influence of the image acquisition techniques were studied via in vitro experiments with ground truth diameters and the measurements of two expert readers as reference. The performance of the method was(More)
In this in vitro study, the accuracy and repeatability of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound (US) in assessing renal length and volume were determined. US and MR images of 20 cadaver pig kidneys were obtained twice and evaluated by two observers for each modality. The fluid displacement method provided the "gold standard." Renal volumes were(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVES To establish the value of electrical impedance tomography (EIT) in assessing pulmonary edema in noncardiogenic acute respiratory failure (ARF), as compared to the thermal dye double indicator dilution technique (TDD). DESIGN Prospective clinical study. SETTING ICU of a general hospital. PATIENTS Fourteen ARF patients. INTERVENTIONS(More)
Elevated cardiac troponin can be seen in patients with left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy and in asymptomatic subjects with a high a priori risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). In hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HC) troponin can be detected as well, but little is known about the contribution of LV mass, on the one hand, and the long-term risk of CVD, on the(More)
Purpose: To determine the accuracy and optimal threshold values of duplex ultrasonography (US) in assessing restenosis of renal artery stents. Methods: Twenty-four consecutive patients with 33 renal arteries that had previously been treated with placement of a Palmaz stent underwent duplex US prior to intraarterial digital subtraction angiography (DSA),(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of pulmonary oedema as measured with the double indicator dilution technique on the accuracy of cardiac output (CO) measurement using thoracic impedance cardiography (TIC) compared with thermodilution in thirteen sepsis patients. Differences in the Kubicek and Sramek-Bernstein equation with respect(More)
Purpose: To assess the incidence of infections and its influence on the survival of radiologically inserted Hickman catheters (HCs) in patients with hematologic disorders and to determine factors associated with premature HC removal. Methods: Survival and complications of 175 HCs in 115 patients were studied retrospectively. To describe the data the(More)
