Title: Clinical Experience with photon counting CT
Session: State of the art. Høstmøte Friday, October 28th kl 0915-1030
Room: Agora 1+2, Clarion Hotel Oslo
Photon-counting CT (PCCT) is an emerging technology with the potential to dramatically change clinical CT. PCCT uses new energy-dissolving X-ray detectors, with mechanisms that differ significantly from conventional energy-integrating detectors.
This new technology results in higher contrast-noise ratio, improved spatial resolution, optimized spectral imaging, reduced radiation exposure, correction of radiation-curing artifacts, optimizes the use of contrast agents and creates opportunities for quantitative imaging compared to current CT technology.
The lecture will primarily discuss how this technology can create clinical benefits and present early experiences from everyday clinical use.
