Detector-based spectral computed tomography: a review

This review analyses the principles of detector-based spectral computed tomography and describes its common clinical applications.




Teaching points:

  • The top and bottom layers of dual-layer CT absorb low- and high-energy photons, respectively.
  • Multiple spectral images are generated by projection-space decomposition.
  • Spectral images can be generated in all patients scanned in this scanner.
