OBJECTIVE This study was designed to define and evaluate a specific index to quantify arterial obstruction with helical CT in acute pulmonary embolism. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifty-four patients (mean age, 56 years) with proven pulmonary emboli among 158 consecutive patients, who had undergone both CT and pulmonary angiography for clinically suspected pulmonary embolism, were eligible for the study. The CT obstruction index was defined as (n. d) (n, value of the proximal clot site, equal to… CONTINUE READING
