AIM Iodine quantification with dual energy computed tomography (DECT) enables quantitative assessment of contrast medium uptake. Our purpose was to investigate patterns of enhancement under BRAF inhibitor therapy by performing histogram analyses (HAs) of iodine maps. MATERIALS & METHODS A total of 11 stage IV melanoma patients (32 metastases) underwent DECT at baseline and at least one follow up. Iodine uptake and HAs including maximum HU value (MAX), mean HU value (MEAN) and standard… CONTINUE READING
