Abstract

The pulmonary arteries are affected by a variety of congenital and acquired abnormalities. Multiple state-of-the art imaging modalities are available to evaluate these pulmonary arterial abnormalities, including computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), echocardiography, nuclear medicine imaging and catheter pulmonary angiography. In part one of this two-part series on state-of-the art pulmonary arterial imaging, we review these imaging modalities, focusing particularly on CT and MRI. We also review the utility of these imaging modalities in the evaluation of pulmonary thromboembolism.
