USEFULNESS OF STANDARD COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY PULMONARY ANGIOGRAPHY PREFORMED FOR ACUTE PULMONARY EMBOLISM FOR IDENTIFICATION OF CHRONIC THROMBOEMBOLIC PULMONARY HYPERTENSION
Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) is often diagnosed after a long delay, even though signs of CTEPH may already be present on the CT pulmonary angiography (CTPA) used to diagnose a preceding acute pulmonary embolism (PE). In this setting of suspected acute PE, we evaluated the diagnostic accuracy of dedicated CTPA reading for the diagnosis of already existing CTEPH.
