Professor David Maintz
University Hospital Cologne, Department of Radiology
A clinical, research and exam board career spanning 22+ years in both USA and Germany has led me to my current role as the Director, Department of Radiology at the University of Cologne. Our department is one of the Iargest academic radiology institutions in Germany, equipped with the latest technologies. In May 2016, the first IQon in Germany was installed in Cologne. Since then we have delivered a large number of publications on that topic. Other research topics of our department are oncologic and cardiac imaging, image guided interventions and artificial intelligence in radiology.
Spectral CT: Dual layer technology helps to increase diagnostic confidence
This talk will report on the two year experience with the new dual layer spectral CT. Several studies have given scientific proof that image quality improvement can be achieved that helps to
detect and characterize pathologic lesions in different parts of the body, hereby increasing diagnostic confidence. At the same time, radiation and contrast media dose may be reduced.
