syngo Dual Energy Xenon1,2
With the application syngo® Dual Energy, it is possible to obtain additional information about the chemical composition of body materials. During a Dual Energy scan, two CT datasets are taken simultaneously with kV levels of 80 kV/140 kV or 1100 kV/140 kV, allowing to visualize differences in the energy dependence of the attenuation coefficients of different materials.
These images will be combined and analyzed to visualize information about anatomical and pathological structures.
