# OF PATIENTS ARTICLE CONCLUSION The results of our study demonstrate that analysis of contrast-enhanced dual-energy material attenuation significantly improves the specificity for characterization of small (1–4 cm) renal lesions compared with that of conventional attenuation measurements. This improvement in specificity may decrease the frequency of unnecessary work-up for small indeterminate renal lesions. Compared with conventional CT, GSI could significantly improve the detection of small and multiple lesions without increasing the radiation dose. Based on spectrum features, GSI could...
