JJJJ Multi-energy CT Imaging (Informative)

JJJJ.1 Domain of Application

Multi-energy CT acquires pixel information which correlates to different X-Ray spectra to enable differentiation, quantification and classification of different types of tissues.

To detect the different X-Ray spectra, Multi-energy (ME) CT imaging uses combinations of different Source(s) and Detector(s) technologies such as current switching X-Ray tubes, spectral detectors, multi-layer detectors, multi-source and detector pairs.
