Dual-energy CT: Principles, clinical value and potential applications in forensic imaging


Alkadhi, Hatem; Leschka, Sebastian (2013). Dual-energy CT: Principles, clinical value and potential applications in forensic imaging. Journal of Forensic Radiology and Imaging, 1(4):180-185.

Abstract

Dual-energy CT uses two different X-ray spectra enabling material differentiation by analyzing the material-dependent photo-electric and Compton effects. By doing so, dual-energy data provides information beyond the morphological information that is normally provided by single-energy CT. This article reviews principles and discusses clinical and potential forensic applications of dual-energy CT.
