This article discusses modern dual-energy computed tomography (DECT) and the unique material-specific information these scanners can provide. A description of the technical aspects of the various DECT techniques is provided. Specific clinical applications in urologic imaging, including chemical composition of urolithiasis, evaluation of renal masses, detection of urothelial neoplasms, and adrenal adenoma imaging, are discussed. The unique postprocessed image sets, including virtual noncontrast, iodine overlay, and stone composition, are described.
