But it seemed doubtful whether he looked out for the sake of contemplation or of turning his back to a person who stood in the middle of the room, with his legs considerably apart and his hands in his trouser-pockets: a person in all respects a contrast to

And this noisiness, this exultation at the moment of the ship's departure, make a tremendous contrast to
the silent moments of her arrival in a foreign roadstead - the silent moments when, stripped of her sails, she forges ahead to her chosen berth, the loose canvas fluttering softly in the gear above the heads of the men standing still upon her decks, the master gazing intently forward from the break of the poop.
"Oh, he is a great contrast to me, I have no doubt" said Newman.
It's a striking contrast to your noble and virtuous attachment--a vile contrast!
I suppose that ancient Greece and modern Greece compared, furnish the most extravagant contrast to
be found in history.
The involved area of brain parenchyma shows increased ADC values in contrast to
no change in ADC for CIE [5, 7].
It was shown that second-generation contrast media agents cause also hemodynamic alterations transiently in contrast to
The CT values of the third-level vessel were greater than 200 HU, with high contrast to
the liver parenchyma or surrounding tissue *Score 3: Diagnostic image quality: The portal veins or inferior vena cava (up to third level) could be imaged well, but the walls of the vessels were slightly rough, with some noise.

Assuming contrast develops over multiple sessions, it is possible that ending phases after a predetermined number of sessions results in Type II errors if the phase is not carried out for a sufficient number of sessions for contrast to
* Reduce costs and prevent waste by using the proper amount of contrast to
achieve the imaging sweet spot.
Alternative investigation was recommended to patients allergic to contrast to
answer the clinical question.
Anyhow for these procedures some formulas have been suggested to calculate the dosage that is least dangerous for renal function: (a) Cigarroa's formula: 5 mL of contrast per kg b.w./serum creatinine (mg/dL) with maximum dose acceptable of 300 mL for diagnostic coronary arteriography ; (b) Laskey's formula: volume of contrast to
eGFR ratio with a cut-off point of the ratio at 3.7 for percutaneous coronary intervention ; recently the cutoff point has been placed at 2.0: below a ratio of 2.0 CIN may be a rare complication of percutaneous coronary intervention, which would increase dramatically at a ratio of 3.0 [143,146]; (c) a ratio of the grams of iodine to eGFR; a ratio of 1.42, or even better a ratio of 1.0, would prevent CIN .
