The primary objective of this study was to evaluate, if in multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) of the wrist a good image quality can be maintained while radiation dose is substantially reduced. In a second approach one solely parameter change that allows for the best trade-off between dose reduction and image quality should be identified. Twenty wrist(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate the performance of ultra-low dose CT for the diagnosis of pediatric-like fractures and ascertain the lowest dose level sufficient for diagnostics. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifty-one bones of young pig cadavers were artificially fractured and subsequently examined by using a 64 multi-detector CT with(More)
BACKGROUND The guidelines of the European Association of Urologists (EAU), of the German Society of Nuclear Medicine (DGN), and the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) recommend sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) for lymph node staging in penile cancer with non-palpable inguinal lymph nodes as one diagnostic method. Despite this, the method is(More)
