SESSION TITLE: Pulmonary Vascular Disease - PE/DVT

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Poster

PRESENTED ON: Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PM

PURPOSE: Chest CT Angiography (CTA) is a sensitive and specific test for diagnosing acute Pulmonary Embolism (PE); however, literature suggests it is associated with a significant false positive rate when a solitary PE is diagnosed in the segmental and sub-segmental branches. The aim of this study was to determine the false positive chest CTA rate and to evaluate the clinical characteristics of these patients and the radiological quality of these scans. We hypothesized that false positive scans would be more commonly diagnosed by a Chest Radiologist (CR) as compared to a general radiologist (GR) or radiology trainee (RT) and that providing all relevant clinical information might increase diagnostic accuracy.
