Sarcopenia (Myosteatosis) at Screening CT Colonoscopy in 79-Year-Old Woman With Subsequent Hip Fracture

Sarcopenia (Myosteatosis) at Screening CT Colonoscopy in 79-Year-Old Woman With Subsequent Hip Fracture: A & B. Image at L1 vertebral level without (A) and with (B) overlay of automated skeletal muscle segmentation (B, red). Intramuscular fat is present within paraspinal muscles (A, yellow circle). Mean muscle attenuation is similar for manually placed ROI (1.8 HU) and automated tool (3.9 HU), being markedly decreased for both approaches. Muscle cross-sectional area is relatively preserved when intramuscular fat is included.

C & D. CT images at L3 level without (C) and with (D) muscle segmentation demonstrate similar findings.

E. Hip radiograph demonstrates left intertrochanteric femoral fracture that occurred when patient fell 2 years later. Patient died 4 years after falling.

Figure shows coarse attention maps generated using GradCAM for correctly classified high-grade glioma (HGG), low-grade glioma (LGG), brain metastases (METS), meningioma (MEN), acoustic neuroma (AN), and pituitary adenoma (PA). For each pair, the postcontrast T1-weighted scan, and the GradCAM attention map (overlaid on scan) have been shown. In GradCAM maps, warmer and colder colors represent high and low contribution of pixels toward a correct prediction, respectively. Image courtesy of the Radiological Society of North America
