Clinical value of spectral CT in the neuroradiology ED setting

For diagnostic testing in the emergency department, Ryan K. Lee MD, Chair of the Department of Radiology at Einstein Healthcare Network (Philadelphia, U.S.) highlighted recent developments in the use of spectral CT for stroke diagnosis and treatment selection. Comparing various spectral CT technologies and highlighting the benefits of dual-detector spectral CT technology, like that used in Philips’ Spectral CT 7500 scanner, he illustrated how its ability to differentiate between contrast agent or contrast agent staining and hemorrhaging can be used to aid definitive diagnosis and support treatment decision making.
