Title:
A Monte Carlo software bench for simulation of spectral k-edge CT imaging: Initial results. 
Abstract:
Spectral Computed Tomography (SCT) systems equipped with photon counting detectors (PCD) are clinically desired, since such systems provide not only additional diagnostic information but also radiation dose reductions by a factor of two or more. The current unavailability of clinical PCDs makes a simulation of such systems necessary.In this paper, we present a Monte Carlo-based simulation of a SCT equipped with a PCD. The aim of this development is to facilitate research on potential clinical ap...    »
