Computed tomography DICOM images analysis allows a quantitative measurement of organ weight, volume and specific gravity in humans. The brain weight, volume and specific gravity of 15 traumatic brain-injury patients (3±2 days after trauma) were computed using a specially designed software (BrainView). Data were compared with those obtained from 15 healthy subjects paired for age and overall intracranial volume. Hemisphere weight were 91 g higher in patients than in controls (1167±101 vs 1076… CONTINUE READING
