Dual-energy radiography, which allows the creation of digital radiographic images from which body materials are selectively canceled, shows promise of clinical utility in a number of applications. Intravenous arteriographic imaging as well as projection imaging of the chest, abdomen, and bones, may be improved by the dual-energy technique. This article discusses principles of dual-energy digital radiograhy and demonstrates clinical examples of images obtained with an experimental mental system.
