Advanced physics meets advanced medicine: Duke Radiology puts one of the first photon-counting CT systems in the world into clinical practice.

“Fifty years after its first introduction into clinical medicine, CT takes a leap forward into a new territory of photon-counting CT, the most innovative advance of the technology in a decade, as stated by the FDA. The new imaging technology offers an unprecedented level of clarity to visualize fine details across the spectrum of human maladies from cardiac, to oncologic, to neurologic.  Photon-counting CT enables us to care for our patients at a higher speed and lower radiation dose than ever thought possible. Incorporated into its rigorous optimization of imaging methods to fit the specific needs of individual patients, Duke Radiology is pleased to be one of the first places in the world to acquire this technology and to put it to clinical use.” Dr. Ehsan Samei, Ph.D., FACR, Duke Physicist
