PE and CTPA

Pulmonary (Thrombo)Embolism and CT Pulmonary Angiography CXR: Normal or - Westermark sign: Focal peripheral lucency beyond occluded vessel - Enlargement of the central pulmonary artery, sausage-like configuration - Atelectasis - Hampton hump: Focal airspace opacification due to infarction - Melting Ice Cube Sign: Resolving pulmonary infarct - Pulmonary effusion - Diaphragmatic elevation - To rule out: PMX, pulmonary edema, pneumonia, rib fx Duplex Doppler US may be obtained before CTAP to r/o DVT in suspected cases. If positive, treatment may be initiated w/o CTAP. CTPA: PIOPED II may be oversensitive for small potentially clinically unimportant emboli "Possible small subsegmental pulmonary embolism identified on a low quality examination, significantly degraded by respiratory motion" Right ventricular strain: RV enlargement, RV wall motion abnormalities, leftward bowing of the interventricular septum
