Reply to “Comment on Methodological accuracy of image-based electron density assessment using dual-energy computed tomography” [Med. Phys. 44, 2429-2437 (2017)]

To the editor,
In his recent letter, Dr. Bouchard expressed his concern that our article on electron density (ED) assessment with dual-energy computed tomography (DECT) contained “some errors and speculative arguments”. We are aware that any study — no matter how carefully conducted — can exhibit erroneous aspects. In this case, however, we concluded that most of the statements and additional data provided by Dr. Bouchard in fact support the key findings of our paper, while other points raised can be attributed to a different use of concepts and to occasional overinterpretation. We therefore firmly reject his assertion. In this reply we provide our response to the criticism
raised:
Keywords: dual-energy CT, electron density, proton therapy
