The use of dual-energy computed tomography (CT) allows for reconstruction of energy- and material-specific image series. The combination of low-energy monochromatic images, iodine maps, and virtual unenhanced images can improve lesion detection and disease characterization in the gastrointestinal tract in comparison with single-energy CT.
