A 72-year-old male patient with poor kidney function (GFR 40 mL/min) was admitted to the hospital with a suspected endoleak after an endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) of the abdominal aorta. A dynamic 4D CT angiography (CTA) was requested to confirm the endoleak and to specify its type. Read more

Optimization of window settings for virtual monoenergetic imaging in dual-energy CT of the liver: A multi-reader evaluation of standard monoenergetic and advanced imaged-based monoenergetic datasets.

Carlo Nicola De Cecco, M.D., PhD

Objectives: To evaluate optimal window settings for display of virtual monoenergetic reconstructions in third-generation dual-source, dual-energy computed tomography (DECT) of the liver. Read more

A noise-optimized virtual monochromatic reconstruction algorithm improves stent visualization and diagnostic accuracy for detection of in-stent re-stenosis in lower extremity run-off CT angiography.
