Stone diameters and Hounsfield units
(HU) were measured with large magnification in bone window on NCCT images (Figure 1).
on computerized tomography predict stone-free rates after extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy.
It should also be kept in mind that stone size and the Hounsfield unit
are significant components affecting the outcome of the procedure.

Caption: Figure 2: Cranial CT reveals hyperdense sedimentations (Hounsfield unit
(HU) 23) in both posterior lateral ventricles, suggesting haemorrhage or pus.
MRI, magnetic resonance imaging; CT, computed tomography; HU, Hounsfield unit
; DWI, diffusion-weighted imaging; ADC, apparent diffusion coefficient.
Through the use of Hounsfield Units
(35), range from 0-1000, in which bone =400+, water= 0, and air=1000 (36).

The CT numbers are measured in the Hounsfield Unit
(HU), which are essential to differentiate between the different tissues in the body by evaluating their attenuation values .
Usefulness of Computed Tomography Hounsfield Unit
Measurement for Diagnosis of Congenital Cholesteatoma.
CT scans revealed a huge hypodense lesion (-70 Hounsfield Unit
) measuring 26x21x35 mm in the suprasellar, left temporolimbic and parahyppocampal regions.
