Paper Abstract

A preliminary study was used to test the strengths and weaknesses of our dual energy radiography system as applied to study of chest lesions. Six patients had a pulmonary nodule or pulmonary nodules known to be present on the basis of prior chest films substantiated by full lung tomograms or CT scans of the chest. The results of the dual energy studies as compared to the chest film findings and the other special studies are reported.
