At Jaslok we have DUAL-ENERGY- CT750 HD (GE)
Discovery CT750 HD is the world's first high-definition CT system, at the forefront of diagnostic care.With breakthrough technology that sets a new standard in CT clarity and low dose. Dual-energy imaging is a promising new development in computed tomography (CT) that has the potential to improve lesion detection and characterization beyond levels currently achievable with conventional CT techniques
In dual-energy CT (DECT), the simultaneous use of two different energy settings allows the differentiation of materials on the basis of their energy-related attenuation characteristics
With the Discovery CT750 HD, you get both: fine detail and repeatable outcomes—with up to 50% less radiation dose.
One of the most promising applications of this modality is characterization of material composition of renal stones which enables the clinician to decide the optimal treatment. Differentiation of calcium phosphate crystals associated with pseudo gout from uric acid associated with gout. Another significant improvement has been reduction of metal artifacts from prosthesis or implants thus significantly improving diagnostic performance. Reduction of metal blooming artifact that may be used to help evaluate internal stent patency. The ability to subtract calcified plaques results in improved estimation of coronary artery stenosis There is better detection and characterization of small liver, kidney, pancreatic and lung tumors
