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

The objective of this review is to illustrate the image appearance and potential value of CR in comparison with conventional VR in a number of various applications and different anatomical regions. Read more

Image Quality of a Novel Frequency Selective Nonlinear Blending Algorithm: An Ex Vivo Phantom Study in Comparison to Single-Energy Acquisitions and Dual-Energy Acquisitions With Monoenergetic Reconstructions

posted by | Nov 15, 2016

Objective: To evaluate the contrast enhancement applying a new frequency split nonlinear blending algorithm (best contrast [BC]) and to compare it with standard 120-kV single-energy computed tomography (SECT) images, as well as with low-kiloelectron volt monoenergetic extrapolations (Mono+40-100keV) from dual-energy CT (DECT) and with lowkilovolt (70-100 kV) SECT acquisitions.
