The purpose of this study was to investigate the cause and significance of intrahepatic gas (IHG). There were 208 nontraumatically deceased individuals retrospectively investigated concerning the occurrence and location of IHG by postmortem multislice computed tomography (MSCT) imaging. The location of IHG was graded on a scale from 0 to 3: 0, no gas; 1, gas only in the left lobe; 2, gas in the left lobe and anterior segment of the right lobe; 3, gas in the left lobe and the anterior and… CONTINUE READING
