MIBE Seminar: Enhancing the Detection of Nondisplaced Fractures with Dark-Field Radiography

Topic: Enhancing the Detection of Nondisplaced Fractures with Dark-Field Radiography

Speaker: Florian Schaff (Pfeiffer Group)

Date and Time: Tuesday 11 June 2024, 1:00 pm

Abstract: Many clinically relevant fractures are radiographically occult in conventional radiographs and thus challenging to diagnose reliably. As an alternative to X-ray attenuation imaging, X-ray dark-field radiography is a developing method that utilizes X-ray scattering as an additional signal source. Since it's development in the early 2000's, dark-field imaging has gained considerable attention in medical imaging research, e.g. in mammography or imaging of the thorax. In this talk we discuss the potential of X-ray dark-field radiography to improve the detection of radiographically occult fractures compared to conventional attenuation-based radiography alone.
