Diagnostic performance of CT in the detection of intestinal ischemia associated with small-bowel obstruction using maximal attenuation of region of interest.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to assess the diagnostic performance of CT in the detection of intestinal ischemia associated with small-bowel obstruction using the maximal attenuation of a region of interest (ROI). MATERIALS AND METHODS Abdominal CT scans of 60 patients with small-bowel obstruction were retrospectively reviewed. The reference… (More)
