Objective To study the diagnostic value of D-Dimer for patients suspected of pulmonary embolism(PE). Methods D-dimer levels were determined by rapid quantitative automated turbidimetric immunoassay. To evaluate the diagnostic performances of the D-dimer testing, sensitivity, specificity, negative predictive values, positive predictive values, accuracy and their 95% confidence intervals(95% CI) were calculated according to standard methods for proportions. The ROC curve analysis was also… Expand
