Background Risk of cardiac events and cardiovascular disease (CVD) in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients are predicted by coronary artery calcification (CAC) independently. It is not clear to what extent low bone mineral density (BMD) is associated with higher risk of CAC and if sex interacts. We investigated the sex-specific associations of CAC score with total body BMD (tBMD) as well as with BMD of different skeletal sub-regions.

Background In obese patients, total hip arthroplasty (THA) can be technically demanding with increased perioperative risks. The aim of this prospective cohort study is to evaluate the effect of body mass index (BMI) on radiological restoration of femoral offset (FO) and leg length as well as acetabular cup positioning.

Background The clinical and research value of Computed Tomography (CT) volumetry of esophageal cancer tumor size remains controversial. Development in CT technique and image analysis has made CT volumetry less cumbersome and it has gained renewed attention. The aim of this study was to assess esophageal tumor volume by semi-automatic measurements as compared to manual.

Objectives: This study explored the effects of gender-affirming treatment, which includes inhibition of endogenous sex hormones and replacement with cross-sex hormones, on muscle function, size and composition in 11 transwomen (TW) and 12 transmen (TM). Methods: Isokinetic knee extensor and flexor muscle strength was assessed at baseline (T00), 4 weeks after gonadal suppression of endogenous hormones but before hormone replacement (T0), and 3 (T3) and 11 (T12) months after hormone replacement. I...

Abstract Objectives The aim of this study was to perform intermethod comparisons between the following three measures of muscle mass depletion in patients eligible for liver transplantation: 1) fat-free mass index (FFMI) measured by dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA), 2) appendicular skeletal muscle mass index (ASMI) measured by DXA, and 3) skeletal muscle index (SMI) measured at the third lumbar level by computed tomography (CT). Methods The medical records of patients who received liver tr...

Abstract Objective To investigate if the conventional localizer radiograph (LR) can be replaced by a synthetic LR (SLR), generated from a low-dose spiral CT scan, for CT scan planning with minimal changes to current clinical workflows. Methods A dosimetric comparison of SLRs and LRs was made using Monte Carlo methods. Water equivalent diameters (WEDs) of a centered and mis-centered phantom were estimated from low-dose spiral CT scans and LRs acquired at different angles. Body sizes, in the form ...
