Case Study

Low MonoE images acquired on the IQon Spectral CT identified a right ovarian torsion, which was confirmed with ultrasound.

Clinical significance

Low MonoE images improved the visualization of the vascular structures and the necrotic area of the pelvis. This case is an example of the improved diagnostic capabilities the IQon Spectral CT can help provide, even in patients who would not have been pre-selected for dual-energy techniques.

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