Abstract

Clinical diagnosis of pulmonary embolism is difficult and often dependent on radiological methods. In Sweden scintigraphy has hitherto been the method most commonly used, though all too often it leaves the diagnosis in doubt. Spiral computed tomography, performed during continuous infusion of contrast medium, clearly depicts the pulmonaries arteries, emboli appearing as filling defects. The examination takes less than one minute. Although the method has yet to be fully evaluated, it is already available at most Swedish hospitals. Results presented so far suggest that the technique has great potential, and may become the method of choice in the diagnosis of pulmonary embolism.
