Dual-energy computed tomography (DECT) has recently been introduced for clinical use. One potential application of DECT is myocardial perfusion imaging through the significant reduction of beam-hardening artifacts by using monochromatic image reconstruction; analysis of these images can improve the accuracy of quantitative measurement of myocardial perfusion. Single-source DECT enabled by rapid switching between the low and high tube potentials (kV) can minimize misregistration of the high and… CONTINUE READING
