BACKGROUND Previous studies have shown that a loss of distinction between gray matter (GM) and white matter (WM) on unenhanced CT scans was predictive of poor outcome after cardiac arrest. The aim of this study was to identify a marker/predictor of imminent brain death. METHODS In this retrospective study, 15 brain-dead patients after anoxia and cardiac… CONTINUE READING
