Consequently, if ABR could be used to determine hearing threshold in the speech frequencies, it would have great value for patients who are(More)
PURPOSE Our purpose was to determine the optimal helical thoracic CT scanning protocol. METHOD Three adult Suffolk sheep under general anesthesia were repeatedly scanned by a variety of variable thickness helical and conventional plus thin section high resolution (lung gold standard) CT sequences, reconstructed for mediastinal (standard interpolator and(More)
