15) Proposed algorithms include performing US after an indeterminate ventilation-perfusion scan, or after a nondiagnostic CT pulmonary angiography (CTPA) examination, or as the initial imaging examination, but the incidence of DVT is variable in such patients.
The imaging of acute pulmonary embolism has advanced with the widespread implementation of CT pulmonary angiography (CTPA) and the emerging role of ventilation perfusion (VQ) SPECT (VQS).
Others analysed CT pulmonary angiography and found that median obstruction index was significantly higher in patients who were admitted with a systolic blood pressure (less then)90mmHg, body temperature ((greater then)37.
Since then, the diagnostic category of PE has been broadened, and the advent of CT pulmonary angiography has yielded nearly a doubling of the incidence of the disease, without a concordant decrease in mortality.
