A prospective study of the predictive value for in-hospital mortality of mandibulodiaphragmatic distance and mandibular dentition on portable anteroposterior chest radiographs


Mandibulodiaphragmatic distance, measured on the portable anteroposterior chest radiograph and applied to the predictive equation developed in this study, is a strong tool for the prediction of in-hospital mortality that could find wide application in clinical practice and provide vital information for risk stratification and resource allocation in a wide… (More)
