Earlier detection of hepatic lesions is critical for better patient outcomes. However routine CT and MR imaging are not sensitive enough. With Dual Source CT, take advantage of large-coverage low-dose perfusion protocols to get hemodynamic parameters to help detect these lesions and predict early response to anti-cancer treatment.

Standard contrast-enhanced biphasic CT scans may fail to detect pancreatic lesions. Dual Source CT and its large-coverage CT perfusion protocols offer the possibility to get qualitative and quantitative information such as blood flow and blood volume that can help to visualize insulinomas - a special pancreatic tumor type.

Employ Dual Source Dual Energy CT for assessment of bone marrow edema. Benefit from high sensitivity and high diagnostic accuracy for the assessment of subchondral insufficiency fracture (SIF) associated bone marrow edema. And potentially use it as an alternative to MRI for patients with contraindications or in situations where MRI is not available.

CTEPH has a poor prognosis if not treated and is difficult to diagnose. With Dual Source Dual Energy CT, you can get morphologic and functional pulmonary assessment without the need to use radioisotopes for scintigraphy - and benefit from high spatial resolution.

When it comes to tasks such as early detection of hepatocellular carcinomas or identifying vascular malformations, routine CT and MR imaging may not be sufficient. Dynamic imaging on Dual Source CT can make the difference in such cases – offering, for example, enough sensitivity to detect micro metastases or to help you differentiate a hemangioma from a soft tissue lesion.

We have compiled eleven cases to show you how dynamic imaging on Dual Source CT can help you provide more confident, precise, and accurate answers.
