Recurrent liver metastases

Case Study
Philips CT Clinical Science Philips Healthcare • USA

Clinical history

A middle-aged patient with a history of breast cancer undergoing chemotherapy and four cycles of TACE (trans-arterial chemoembolization) was referred to the University of Cologne for a follow-up scan on the IQon Spectral CT system. The patient had previously demonstrated primarily good tumor de-vascularization in the context of disseminated liver metastases.

Image scan parameters

  • 10.2 mGy CTDI
  • 703.2 mGy x cm DLP
  • 10.5 mSv


Clinical significance

Recurrent liver metastases were observed on the follow-up scan. These hyper-vascular lesions (e.g. in liver segment 6) were very difficult to identify on a conventional scan, but are clearly visible on the low MonoE 40keV spectral results.

* Results from case studies are not predictive of results in other cases. Results in other cases may vary.
