Quantitative aspects of computed tomography of the blood and cerebrospinal fluid.

Abstract

Computed tomographic (CT) scans of fresh and coagulated blood in vitro as well as calcium and iron solutions demonstrate that the increased absorption seen in hematomas is primarily a reflection of hemoconcentration: calcium plays essentially no role in this increased absorption, while iron makes a minimal contribution. In vitro studies of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) indicate that CT scanning is insensitive to pathological elevations of CSF protein.
