    D M Connor
    Brookhaven National Lab, Upton, NY 11973, USA
    Phys Med Biol 51:3283-300. 2006
    ..The images acquired with DEI show measurable contrast-to-noise gains when compared to the images acquired using SR radiography...

    Dean M Connor
    National Synchrotron Light Source, Brookhaven National Laboratory, Upton, NY 11973, USA
    Neuroimage 46:908-14. 2009
    ..Several anatomical structures, including hippocampal subregions and white matter tracks, were also observed. Thus, DEI has strong promise in early diagnosis of AD, as well as general studies of the mouse brain...

    D M Connor
    Department of Biomedical Engineering, Biomedical Research Imaging Center, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, 4030 Bondurant Hall, CB 7000, Chapel Hill, NC 27599, USA
    Phys Med Biol 54:6123-33. 2009
    ..Thus, DECT will prove to be a useful tool for imaging applications in which high contrast and high spatial resolution are required for both soft tissue features and bone...
