12 Nov This implies that for every image voxel, a Hounsfield unit value based on the material inside that voxel needs to be determined during image. Despite the many indications of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) in dentistry, there is no consensus regarding the accuracy and reliability of bone. O valor da medida de atenuação máxima em Unidades Hounsfield de um cálculo, como o determinado pela tomografia computadorizada convencional sem.

Nobel lecture, December 8, Receiver operating characteristics ROC curve analysis was used to determine cutoffs for the variables that divided the groups. Accurate determination of chemical composition of urinary calculi by spiral computerized tomography.

First Review in March 3 A Correlative Clinico-Radiological Study”. Evaluation and medical management of urinary lithiasis. Our results in terms of stone composition, patient’s age and gender are not expandable to other patient populations, but the present method could easily be applied anywhere generating specific hounsfielr values and equations for different populations by using less expensive easily accessible SECT.

Using logistic regression, we generated an equation to calculate the probability of such a stone being composed of COM. Reptile medicine and surgery. J Comput Assist Tomogr.

Stones that are composed of calcium oxalate monohydrate COM are firm and might be treated more effectively with percutaneous nephrolithotomy PCNL. Journal of Hounstield Sciences.

Based unidaces the application of this equation we found that lower PixHU values reflect a lower probability of a stone being composed of COM in males and females Figure 2. ROC cutoff value of 1, Hounsfield Units.

Seven patients with uric acid stones were identified by presenting with the highest attenuation value for a pixel in stones less than HU all other stones types exceeded HU.

UNIDADES HOUNSFIELD by Sofia Mayela Salguero on Prezi

To examine whether the Hounsfield Unit value predicts calcium oxalate monohydrate stones in patients who are undergoing percutaneous nephrolithotomy. Copy of Escuela De Enfermeria Iberoameri A higher Hounsfield Unit value and increased age augmented the chances of a ohunsfield being composed of calcium oxalate monohydrate. It should also be noted that the routine use of CBCT after implant placement should be avoided owing to radioprotection concerns.


Using thin cuts, the highest single-energy computed tomography attenuation value within a pixel was measured for each stone.
