New study comparing Myelography using Energy-Integrating Detector CT Versus Photon-Counting Detector CT.

Duke Radiology investigators employed a novel CT technology, photon counting CT, to identify CSF-venous fistulas causing debilitating symptoms in patients with Spontaneous Intracranial Hypotension. 

Background: CSF-venous fistulas (CVFs) are an increasingly recognized cause of spontaneous intracranial hypotension (SIH) that are often diminutive in size and exceedingly difficult to detect by conventional imaging.

Objective: This study's objective was to compare EID-CT myelography and PCD-CT myelography in terms of image quality and diagnostic performance for detecting CVFs in patients with SIH.
