Carlo Nicola De Cecco, M.D., PhD

Objectives: To determine the optimal window setting for displaying virtual monoenergetic reconstructions of third generation dual-source, dual-energy CT (DECT) angiography of the abdomen. Read more

T(Rho) and magnetization transfer and INvErsion recovery (TRAMINER)-prepared imaging A novel contrast-enhanced flow-independent dark-blood technique for the evaluation of myocardial late gadolinium enhancement in patients with myocardial infarction.

Carlo Nicola De Cecco, M.D., PhD

Purpose: To evaluate a new dark-blood late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) technique called “T(Rho) And Magnetization transfer and INvErsion Recovery” (TRAMINER) for the ability to detect myocardial LGE versus standard “bright-blood” inversion recovery (SIR) imaging. Read more

Correlation between Dual-Energy and Perfusion CT in Patients with Hepatocellular Carcinoma.

posted by Hatem Alkadhi, M.D., M.P.H., E.B.C.R. | Feb 6, 2017
Hatem Alkadhi, M.D., M.P.H., E.B.C.R.

Purpose: To develop a dual-energy contrast media-enhanced computed tomographic (CT) protocol by using time-attenuation curves from previously acquired perfusion CT data and to evaluate prospectively the relationship between iodine enhancement metrics at dual-energy CT and perfusion CT parameters in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).

Noise Texture Deviation: A Measure for Quantifying Artifacts in CT Images With Iterative Reconstructions.

posted by Hatem Alkadhi, M.D., M.P.H., E.B.C.R. | Jan 22, 2017
Hatem Alkadhi, M.D., M.P.H., E.B.C.R.

Objectives: The aims of this study were to introduce the measure noise texture deviation as quantitative parameter for evaluating iterative reconstruction (IR)-specific artifacts in computed tomography (CT) images and to test whether IR-specific artifacts, quantified through this measure, are reduced in advanced modeled IR (ADMIRE) as compared with sinogram-affirmed IR … Read more
