Methods and Materials

A retrospective search of the center´s inpatient database from 12/2008 until 09/2012 was performed for the following criteria: MDCT of chest and/or abdomen and an interventional procedure within 7 days thereafter. MDCT is effective in detecting active arterial traumatic and nontraumatic bleeding and dedicated protocols have been described more than 10 years ago (1,2).

All MDCT studies were performed in the arterial and venous phase on a Siemens Sensation Open 40 row- MDCT (Siemens Medical Solutions, Erlangen, Germany) with the following parameters 100 kV, mAs 170, Matrix 512 x 512; collimation 24 x 1.2mm. 120 ml contrast agent (350mg/ml) was injected with time-dependent flow using the Optibolus software. Axial and coronal and oblique MPRs (3 mm) and MIPs were obtained using a soft tissue algorithm (400/40 HU).
