Dual-energy CT (DECT) is not new, in fact, says Benjamin Yeh, MD, it has been around just as long as computed tomography (CT) has. What is new is that CT scanners can capture DECT quickly and with good image quality. He discusses new applications of DECT along with his lab's translational research group focusing on the exploration and development of novel CT techniques.

The SAR and ESUR set out to establish joint guidelines on PAS disorders and propose strategies to standardize image acquisition, interpretation and reporting with MRI. The lead authors of this important consensus work are Priyanka Jha, MBBS and Liina Poder, MD.
