Dual energy radiography

Sharing is caring!

What is dual energy radiography?

In dual energy radiography, two radiographic images of a patient are (nearly) simultaneously acquired at two different mean x-ray beam energies. These images are then combined to create a subtraction image to highlight either soft tissue or bone components present in the patient, as these components differentially attenuate the x-rays at different energies.
