OBJECTIVES The least amount of contrast medium (CM) should be used under the premise of adequate diagnosis. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the feasibility of utilizing ultra-low-dose (224聽mgI/kg) CM for pancreatic artery depiction using the combination of advanced virtual monoenergetic imaging (VMI+) and high-concentration (400聽mgI/mL) CM. MATERIALS AND METHODS 41 patients who underwent both normal dose CM (ND-CM, 320聽mgI/kg) and low dose CM (LD-CM, 224聽mgI/kg) thoracoabdominal enhance...

OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate a contrast media (CM)-saline mixture administration with DualFlow (DF) to adapt injection protocols to low-kilovolt (kV) computed tomography angiography (CTA). MATERIALS AND METHODS In both a circulation phantom and animal model (5 Goettingen minipigs), 3 injection protocols were compared in dynamic thoracic CTA: (a) DF injection protocol at 80 kV with a iodine delivery rate (IDR) of 0.9 gI/s, a flowrate of 5 mL/s injected with a 60%/40% ratio of i...

Modern medicine cannot be imagined without the diagnostic capabilities of computed tomography (CT). Although the past decade witnessed a tremendous increase in scan speed, volume coverage, and temporal resolution, along with a considerable reduction of radiation dose, current trends in CT aim toward more patient-centric, tailored imaging approaches that deliver diagnostic information being personalized to each individual patient. Functional CT with dual-and multienergy, as well as dynamic, perfu...

Computed tomography pulmonary angiography (CTPA) is usually used for pulmonary embolism (PE) detection. However, the determination of scan timing remains a challenge due to the short scan duration of CTPA. We aimed to develop an optimized test bolus to determine scan delay in CTPA. The time-enhancement curves were obtained by measuring the enhancement within a region of interest in the main pulmonary artery and vein. A total of 70 patients were randomly divided into two groups (n鈥=鈥35 each): the...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the in vivo feasibility of a multibolus contrast agent (CA) injection protocol with a reduced CA volume for thoraco-abdominal CT angiography (CTA) and to compare it to a single-bolus CA injection protocol. METHOD: 63 patients who underwent CTA with the multibolus protocol (60 ml CA) were divided in two groups either without (group 1, n = 48) or with (group 2, n = 15) aortic dissection. The aortic contrast enhancement was measured in group 1 using manual ROI analysis (10 segm...

Artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms are dependent on a high amount of robust data and the application of appropriate computational power and software. AI offers the potential for major changes in cardiothoracic imaging. Beyond image processing, machine learning and deep learning have the potential to support the image acquisition process. AI applications may improve patient care through superior image quality and have the potential to lower radiation dose with AI-driven reconstruction algori...
