Abstract

Multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) has improved the diagnosis of pulmonary embolism (PE), especially the detection of small emboli in segmental and subsegmental pulmonary arteries. This article presents optimal scanning parameters and interpretation techniques for MDCT evaluation of PE, reviews the findings of acute and chronic PE in small vessels, and addresses potential interpretation errors.
