Describes the nature of a clinical study. Types include:
The purpose of this study is to measure the performance of Dual-Energy CT scans that are able to reduce interference caused by metal objects, and then compare with standard echocardiography for checking patients with LVAD devices.

Open for enrollment
The purposes for this study are to determine the ability of volumetric dynamic 4D CTA compared to replace current single-phase CTA and eliminate venous contamination that can decrease scan accuracy. Additionally, we seek to estimate the ability of this new imaging technique (volumetric dynamic 4D CTA) to reduce the dose of intravenous iodine and radiation dose.
Our purpose for this study is to help design a therapy plan that can decrease extra radiation exposure to your heart during radiotherapy. The therapy plan will use images obtained using a dual-source CT scanner
The primary purpose of this study is to understand the effect of educating patients and encouraging shared decision making on rates of CT scanning in head injured patients by using an already developed app and observing the effect on the health care provider
The purpose of this study is to assess key characteristics of bone quality, specifically material strength and porosity, in patients who have type 2 diabetes. These patients are at an unexplained increased risk for fractures and there is an urgent need to refine clinical assessment for this risk.
The purpose of this study is to assess whether our not the percentage of pulmonary related vascular structures (PRVS) determined by the quantitative CT (Q-CT) tool CALIPER is a novel measure that can be used for the early detection of pulmonary vascular remodeling in patients with SSc. pulmonary related vascular structures

The purpose of this study is to determine the tradeoffs between CT image quality and patient radiation dose in a way that moves beyond current simple models (e.g. standard deviation and CTDIvol) by investigating the relationships between task-based metrics of image quality, observer performance, patient size, and patient dose.
The purpose of this study is to assess the combined impact of post-processing methods that quantify potential biomarkers of chronic liver disease (AEF, fECS) and that improve iodine signal (vMono+) on detecting liver fibrosis and hepatic masses or esophageal varices, in comparison to routine contrast-enhanced liver CT.
A Study of the ability for CT imaging to accurately predict the fragility (quality of being easily broken) of kidney stones during surgical intervention.
The purpose of this study is to examine the ability of PCD-CT to (1) display subtle fractures of the wrist using the system’s increased spatial resolution compared to conventional wrist CT and MR; and (2) evaluate the ability of PCD-CT with virtual non-calcium images to identify bone marrow edema at acute fracture sites.
