dual-energy imaging

dual-energy imaging

[dyo̅o̅′əl]
a radiographic imaging technique in which two radiographs using two different kilovoltages are taken of the same target area. Because the radiographic image of soft tissue and bone varies with the kilovoltage, one radiograph isolates bone contrast and the other isolates soft tissue contrast. The combined x-ray films can facilitate a more precise identification of an abnormality, such as a lung nodule calcification.
