syngo.via - CT Dual Energy General Viewing Step by Step

syngo.via® CT Dual Energy General Viewing syngo.via CT Dual Energy is a diagnostic tool that can be used to evaluate the chemical composition of body tissue. Depending on the organs of interest, this tool provides different application classes that combine pa- rameters and algorithms that are optimized for the visualization of the organs of interest. Dual Energy Gen- eral Viewing combines the basic functions of CT Dual Energy and provides tools to perform an initial diagno- sis. 1. From the Patient Worklist, load an appropriate data set into the CT Dual Energy Workflow: • If the examination has been correctly mapped, double click to load • If manual mapping is required, right-click the examination and select Open With > CT Dual Energy 2. The DE FOV icon shows or hides the Dual Energy field of view, which is indicated in the segments by the yellow lines/circles. Only within the yellow lines/circles is full dual energy information available for the current task. FOV 3. Extend ROI Text displays all available evaluation results for all ROIs.

The Optimum Contrast mode combines the increased contrast from the low energy data and the low noise from the high energy data into an optimized data set with a maximum contrast-to-noise ratio for the iodine contrast agent. Optimum Contrast • To view Optimum Contrast images: Mono E  Toggle to the Optimum Contrast icon (if not already dis- played).  The contrast-to-noise-ratio of the images for iodine is maxim- ized. R  The Optimum Contrast mini toolbar provides sliders for indi- vidual customization of the center (C slider) and width (W slider). Optimum Contrast Windowing C -300 150 500  Click the Optimum Contrast icon again to return to the Gen- W 200 500 O eral Viewing mode. 6. The Monoenergetic mode allows for the display of images that are equivalent to images acquired with a monoenergetic x-ray beam of selectable energy. • To view Monoenergetic images:  Toggle to the Mono E icon. Optimum Contrast  Images equivalent to images acquired with a single photon energy beam are calculated. L Mono E  In the mini toolbar, move the Monoenergetic keV slider to a desired keV value, or in the dia- gram segment move the vertical white line.
