Abstract

Viewing dual-energy CT images may result in the greatest subjective lesion conspicuity and measured contrast-to-noise ratio at 50 keV with equal detection of hyperenhancing liver lesions compared with viewing 77-keV images alone. In addition, the radiation doses of dual-energy CT may be similar to those of single-energy CT.
