“Research is increasingly showing that dual-energy CT can detect response to certain treatments earlier — which conventional CTs cannot predict. Sometimes a tumour may not change in size but it may change in blood flow and we can use dual-energy to help assess blood flow indirectly," said Dr Andrew Gogbashian, our lead consultant for CT, in a recent interview for Inside View magazine.

Doctors are very interested in our ability to carry out dual-energy scans and have approached us for research projects as a result. Dr Gogbashian said: "There's more and more research happening with dual-energy and we hope that in the future there will be other breakthroughs.
