PURPOSE To evaluate the reliability of attenuation values in virtual non-contrast images (VNC) reconstructed from contrast-enhanced, dual-energy scans performed on a second-generation dual-energy CT scanner, compared to single-energy, non-contrast images (TNC). MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixteen phantoms containing a mixture of contrast agent and water at(More)
Transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta)1 is thought to be involved in breast carcinogenesis. TGF-beta1 acts in an antiproliferative manner in the early stages of breast carcinogenesis, but promotes tumor progression and metastases in the advanced stages of the disease. No data have been published on serum TGF-beta1 in breast cancer. We investigated(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to use second-generation dual-source CT to assess the influence of size, degree of stenosis, luminal contrast attenuation, and plaque geometry on stenosis quantification in a coronary artery phantom. MATERIALS AND METHODS Six vessel phantoms with three outer diameters (2, 3, and 4 mm), each containing three(More)
