Improving Image Quality of Bronchial Arteries with Virtual Monochromatic Spectral CT Images


OBJECTIVE To evaluate the clinical value of using monochromatic images in spectral CT pulmonary angiography to improve image quality of bronchial arteries. METHODS We retrospectively analyzed the chest CT images of 38 patients who underwent contrast-enhanced spectral CT. These images included a set of 140kVp polychromatic images and the default 70keV… (More)
