Industry Innovates, Presented by Siemens Healthineers: Neuroradiology Applications of Dual Energy CT: From Bread-and-Butter to Champagne-and-Caviar
Dual Energy CT (DECT) is fast becoming the modality of choice for imaging many neurological conditions including trauma, ischemic stroke, and hemorrhagic stroke. This presentation will describe multiple applications of the new features DECT provides in the clinical management of neurological conditions. We will describe both routine applications of DECT that currently are in widespread clinical use as well as advanced applications that currently are being researched.
