Second-generation dual-energy CT of the abdomen: radiation dose comparison with 64- and 128-row single-energy acquisition

posted by Carlo Nicola De Cecco, M.D. | Nov 3, 2014
Carlo Nicola De Cecco, M.D.

The slightly increased radiation dose can be justified if the additional information obtained using a spectral imaging approach directly impacts on patient management or reduce the overall radiation dose with the generation of virtual unenhanced images, which can replace the precontrast acquisition.
