Pulmonary Embolism

Pulmonary Embolism - Diagnosis

Pulmonary embolism is diagnosed via a computed tomography pulmonary angiogram which involves the injection of a dye into the blood vessel before the scan is taken. The scan will be able to identify any blood clots or blockages in the lungs. The scan may not be suitable for everyone such as people with poor kidney function or who are allergic to contrast dye.
