  author={K Wang and SSS Lo and K W Chan},
The characteristic imaging features of chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension are described. This is a very rare disorder; prompt surgical treatment affords good results. The complementary use of the ventilation/perfusion scan and CT pulmonary angiogram in diagnosis, and exclusion of other differential diagnoses, are emphasised.
