Chest computed tomography (CT) is a fundamental tool for the characterization of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Its frequent use is, however, hindered by the associated radiation exposure. The aim of the present study was to evaluate, in patients with ARDS, the accuracy of quantitative and visual anatomical lung analysis performed on low-dose CT. We hypothesized that low-dose CT would provide accurate quantitative and visual anatomical results. Chest CT was performed in 45 ARDS… CONTINUE READING
