STUDY OBJECTIVE To review the published experience with gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) for the detection of acute pulmonary embolism (PE) in order to test the hypothesis that gadolinium-enhanced MRA may be potentially sensitive and specific enough to include it among diagnostic alternatives in the evaluation of patients with suspected PE. METHODS Studies were identified by searching MEDLINE for trials that used gadolinium-enhanced MRA to diagnose acute PE based on… CONTINUE READING
