Imaging algorithms utilizing V/Q scanning, leg ultrasound and pulmonary angiography have substantial limitations, and may result in patients being treated on clinical grounds without a definitive diagnosis. Hence, the introduction of spiral CT angiography of the pulmonary arteries has been greeted with enthusiasm.

Computed tomography pulmonary angiography (CTA) has increasingly become accepted as a widely available, safe, cost-effective, and accurate method for a quick and comprehensive diagnosis of acute

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES The study aimed to improve the detection of pulmonary embolism via an iodine contrast enhancement tool in patients who underwent suboptimal enhanced computed tomography
Reproducibility of CT signs of right heart strain in acute pulmonary embolism
TLDR
Poster: "ECR 2010 / B-397 / Reproducibility of CT signs of right heart strain in acute pulmonary embolism" by: "J. J. Schoepf, J. W. Nance, and G. Kang".
Where do we stand? Functional imaging in acute and chronic pulmonary embolism with state-of-the-art CT.
TLDR
The current status and potential prognostic advantages of CTPA orDE CTPA with its recent developments for accessing right ventricular dysfunction and the assessment of first pass lung perfusion with DE CTPA in the diagnosis of acute and chronic PE are reviewed.
Imaging of pulmonary embolism: too much of a good thing?
TLDR
It is convincingly demonstrated that computed tomographic pulmonary angiography is not inferior to ventilation-perfusion lung scanning for the exclusion of pulmonary embolism (PE), and CTPA has good interreader agreement, is highly specific for pulmonary emboli, and eliminates some of the subjectivity and confusion associated with V̇/Q̇ scan interpretation expressed in probabilities of PE.
MR pulmonary angiography: Can it be used as an alternative for CT angiography in diagnosis of major pulmonary thrombosis?
TLDR
The non contrast MR-PA has a reasonable sensitivity and specificity in the diagnosis of PE especially in major branches and can be used as an alternative to the CTA especially when the CMA and the use of gadolinium are contraindicated.
