Could temporal window for the computed tomography hepatic venography (CTHV) be extended?: A comparative study between spectral and conventional CT using porcine models.


OBJECTIVE To investigate the feasibility of extending the acceptable temporal window for hepatic venography with dual-energy spectral CT imaging. METHODS Five normal pigs anesthetized intramuscularly were scanned on a multislice CT (GE Discovery HD750 CT) after bolus contrast injection. Twelve CT scans with dual-energy spectral imaging mode were performed… (More)
