OBJECTIVE This prospective study was done to evaluate the ability of indirect multidetector row CT venography (CTV) in detecting deep venous thrombosis of the pelvis and the thighs in comparison with Doppler sonography in patients with suspected pulmonary embolism (PE). METHODS Forty-one patients with suspected PE were included, and CTV (collimation 4 x 2.5 mm, table feed 12.5 mm, 120 kV, eff. mAs 165) from the iliac crest to the knees was done after CT angiography (CTA) of the pulmonary… CONTINUE READING
