Dual Source CT

In an Article First performance evaluation of a dual-source CT (DSCT) system in European Radiology Thomas G. Flohr et al present first patient scans to illustrate the performance of DSCT for ECG-gated cardiac imaging, and demonstrate first results using a dual-energy acquisition mode. First clinical experience shows a considerably increased robustness for the imaging of patients with high heart rates. As a potential application of the dual-energy acquisition mode, the automatic separation of bones and iodine-filled vessels is demonstrated.
