Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

Dual-energy CT permits a variety of image reconstructions for the depiction and characterization of vascular disease. Techniques include visualization of low- and high-peak-kilovoltage spectra image datasets and also material-specific reconstructions combining both low- and high-peak-kilovoltage data.

CONCLUSION:

This article focuses on four main vascular areas: the aorta, the major visceral, lower limb, and cervical arteries. For each territory, the current status, potential advantages, and limitations of these techniques are described.
