Dual-Energy CT Tendon Algorithm in Acute Trauma: Initial Experiences

posted by Savvas Nicolaou, M.D. | Jun 13, 2014

Computed tomography has become increasingly popular in the assessment of limbs in the acute trauma setting. Bony anatomic detail is excellent; however, soft tissue detail is typically limited, especially when compared with ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging.
