Ultrasound and Computed Tomography Imaging Technologies for Nutrition Assessment in Surgical and Critical Care Patient Populations
Current Surgery Reports
Modern imaging techniques, including portable bedside sonography and high-resolution computed tomography, have revolutionized our ability to diagnose and treat patients. One unique way of leveraging the availability of clinical information provided by these imaging modalities is in the areas of lean body mass and nutritional assessment. This review provides an outline of key aspects of state-of-the-art approaches to imaging-based nutritional assessment in surgical and intensive care unit populations.
