Local cerebral blood flow as assessed by xenon stable computed tomography in child drowning


A comatose patient who nearly drowned was studied with xenon stable computed tomography (CT) to assess regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) after a basic CT studied revealed bilateral lucencies in the basal ganglia. Xenon stable CT revealed increased rCBF in the lucent areas of the basal ganglia and previously unsuspected absence of flow in the posterior… (More)
