ABSTRACT


The purpose of this paper is to identify indications for volumetric X-ray digital linear tomosynthesis (DLT) with single- and dual-energy subtraction techniques for artificial pulmonary nodule detection and compare X-ray DLT, X-ray digital radiography, and computed tomography.
Keywords: Dual-energy Subtraction, Pulmonary Nodules, Tomosynthesis
