Dual energy CT in patients with acute abdomen; is it possible for virtual non-enhanced images to replace true non-enhanced images?


This study aims to determine whether virtual non-enhanced images derived from dual-energy computed tomography (CT) can replace true non-enhanced images in patients with acute abdomen. Patients with acute abdomen (n = 202) underwent multidetector CT including non-enhanced and contrast-enhanced images obtained at the portal phase using the dual-energy… (More)
