METHODS Renal US and renal function tests were performed on 120 patients with bipolar disorder. Ninety patients (30 males, 60 females), aged 36-82 years, had received lithium therapy for an average of(More)
BACKGROUND A suspicion of ventriculo-peritoneal shunt failure is classified as the most common indication for CT in children with hydrocephalus. The main target of the study was to evaluate the diagnostic value of a low-dose protocol and to compare a total DLP received by patients in compared protocols.
