In this study, we proposed an imaging related parameter, that is, the ratio of injured lung volume fraction, for the prognosis evaluation of acute PQ poisoning based on the correlation between disease progress and lung imaging features. An artificial neural network was trained and then used to classify the injured and normal lung regions. The ratio of injured lung volume fraction was calculated from the injured lung volume fractions in the first and second CT scans after three-dimensional reconstruction. Parameters of blood tests were collected. A significant difference was observed with respect to the ratio of injured lun...

This study aimed to evaluate a reader-independent quantitative density metric (QDM) derived from CT histograms to associate with CLAD survival. A retrospective study evaluated CT scans corresponding to CLAD onset using pulmonary function tests in 74 patients (23 RAS, 51 BOS). Two different QDM values (QDM1 and QDM2) were calculated using CT lung density histograms. Calculation of QDM1 includes the extreme edges of the histogram. Calculation of QDM2 includes the central region of the histogram. Kaplan-Meier analysis and Cox regression analysis were used for CLAD prognosis. Higher QDM values were significantly associated wit...

By ROBERT WACHTER and JEFF GOLDSMITH After a blizzard of hype surrounding the electronic health record (EHR), health professionals are now in full backlash mode against this complex new tool. They are rightly seen as a major cause of professional burnout among physicians and nurses: Clinicians are spending almost half their professional time typing, clicking, and checking boxes on electronic records. They can and must be made into useful, easy-to-use tools that liberate, rather than oppress, clinicians. Performing several tasks, badly. The EHR is a lot more than merely an electronic version of the patient&rs...

Pectoralis muscle mass and tissue attenuation obtained on preoperative CT scans are powerful predictors of mortality after LVAD implantation. Gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding remains a common problem on mechanical support. It is unknown whether these skeletal muscle measures, which correlate with frailty and tissue quality, are associated with the development of recurrent GI bleeding.

Exercise capacity is impaired in left ventricular assist device (LVAD) recipients, but little is known about the importance of right atrial or ventricular function during exercise in these patients. Using 4D CT scans at rest and immediately following exercise, the purpose of this study was to examine right heart systolic function and the association to exercise capacity in LVAD recipients.

Right ventricular (RV) failure after left ventricular assist device (LVAD) causes significant morbidity and mortality, and remains difficult to predict preoperatively. Pectoralis muscle mass and attenuation on preoperative CT scans are predictors of mortality after LVAD implantation. Because RV failure is associated with skeletal muscle wasting, we hypothesized that pectoralis muscle measures may be associated with RV failure related mortality.

Pectoralis muscle mass and tissue attenuation obtained on preoperative CT scans are powerful predictors of mortality after LVAD implantation. A multivariable prediction model incorporating pectoralis muscle measures was created and tested in this analysis.
