The article presents a study to test the impact of image quality, Gunnar eyewear and nodule location on detectability of lung nodules in chest computed tomography (CT). It compares the individual influence of image quality, Gunnar eyewear and nodule location. It suggests that the sensitivity for...
- Third accessory (supernumerary) intrathoracic right rib. Apaydin, Melda; Sarsilmaz, Aysegul; Varer, Makbule // Surgical & Radiologic Anatomy;Oct2009, Vol. 31 Issue 8, p641
Intrathoracic ribs are very rare congenital anomaly. We report a case of a third accessory intrathoracic rib located anterior to the normally developed right third rib in a 37-year-old man. Chest X-ray was not diagnostic. Multidetector computed tomography with 3D reconstructions was required for...
