Since the quality of computed tomography (CT) imaging techniques has improved, pulmonary embolism (PE) has increasingly been detected incidentally on routine CT examination. In particular, in patients with malignancy, who are known to be at elevated risk of developing venous thromboembolic events, and who frequently undergo CT scanning for reasons such as diagnosing, staging, and treatment evaluation, incidental PE has become a relatively common finding [1].
