[Value of the dual-energy method in quantitative CT studies of the brain].

Using a dual-energy (DE) method, conventional polyenergetic and monoenergetic beams were used to obtain data in phantom and clinical CT studies and to prove the benefit of this method in quantitative cranial CT. Conventional polyenergetic (85 kVp and 125 kVp) and simulated monoenergetic images were reconstructed from the measurements. The noise in the… CONTINUE READING
