Computed tomography (CT) is one of the essential imaging modalities for medical diagnosis. Since its introduction in 1972, CT technology has been improved dramatically, especially in terms of its acquisition speed.

Different materials may have the same CT number, which may lead to uncertainty or misdiagnosis.
