Savvas Nicolaou, M.D.

DECT with virtual non-calcium subtraction imaging is highly sensitive in the detection of bone marrow edema in radiographically occult hip fractures. In our limited series it was a very useful adjunct to confirm equivocal CT findings of subtle cortical irregularities. Read more
