We present here our initial findings regarding the utility of functional x-ray CT imaging in determining the presence of pulmonary emboli. Recently, x-ray CT has been reported to be a promising technique in detecting pulmonary emboli through direct visualization of the clot as a filling defect of the reconstructed vascular lumen with CT scanning occurring during i.v. contrast drip. To determine whether functional imaging via the dynamic mode of electron beam CT might add to the sensitivity and… CONTINUE READING
