BACKGROUND While symptomatic venous thromboembolism adversely impacts survival among cancer patients, the outcome of cancer patients with unsuspected pulmonary embolism (UPE) found on routine cancer staging multi-row detector computed tomography (MDCT) scans is unknown. OBJECTIVE To determine whether UPE detected on routine staging MDCT scans impacts overall survival among cancer patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS We performed a matched cohort study of cancer patients diagnosed with UPE on… CONTINUE READING
