Computed tomography angiography, Pulmonary embolism, Heart abnormalities. The most frequent abnormalities were dilatation of the heart chambers and coronary calcifications. Mescape, Aug 09, For further information, please refer to the original article: CTPA for the diagnosis of acute pulmonary embolism during pregnancy.

With the improved diagnostic image quality, PE could also potentially be ruled out faster allowing patients to possibly be discharged sooner and given angiosccanner of mind. Access to the PDF text.

Prohibition of deep inspiration to prevent the Valsalva Maneuver, low voltage scan, appropriate injection volume and rate, and early acquisition. Thorac Imaging ; 22 2. Results showed that very few institutions had a specific protocol and levels of satisfaction varied widely.

The disadvantage is phlmonaire if the acquisition window misses the point of maximum enhancement, the arteries will not be fully opacified and it becomes difficult to rule out pulmonary embolism. Moreover, foetuses are especially sensitive to dose.

Quality of CT pulmonary angiography for suspected pulmonary embolus in pregnancy. Feuillets de Radiologie ; 47 3: As a result, they proposed adjustment of these four parameters to improve pulmonary arterial contrast enhancement and, therefore, image quality. Contact Help Who are we? Short acquisition times make it possible to target an event such as an arterial phase. In the following, we will take a closer look at these four parameters. Not only is CTPA usually readily available, it also enables comprehensive assessment of the thorax and visualization of the thrombus to support differential diagnoses Fig.


This reduced quality of CTPA in pregnant women is caused almost entirely by pregnancy related physiological changes that can last for several weeks angiosfanner.

Baccouche abJ. Overcoming CT imaging limitations. This has potential to help reduce mortality rates and achieve better outcomes.

Prise en charge des principales urgences thoraciques et abdominales durant la grossesse. During CTPA, radiologists and radiographers subjectively evaluate injection quality to check for sufficient contrast enhancement of the pulmonary arteries.

This remarkable speed means that time is now also a key factor in pulmonary imaging. As evidenced in the literature, CTPA in pregnant women tends to produce images of lower quality with weaker contrast enhancement compared with scans of non-pregnant patients.

Case Report

qngioscanner When PE is suspected, a computed tomography CT scan may be recommended in some countries as a quick response. Journal page Archives Contents list.

Image quality and radiation exposure at pulmonary CT angiography with or kVp protocol: Over-diagnosis may also result in treatments that might be dangerous for the unborn child and the mother. It is important to carefully examine pulmonary angiographies in search of cardiac abnormalities that can cause chest symptoms zngioscanner to pulmonary embolism. In addition to the survey, the department also retrospectively analyzed examinations and the conditions in which they were performed.


Lastly, conventional imaging modalities are more complicated when used for pregnant patients. Hantous-Zannad abI. Objective evidence would be when a region of interest ROI placed at the pulmonary artery indicates a density higher than HU.

Researchers conducted a survey to find out whether other imaging facilities had a specific protocol for CT pulmonary angiography in pregnant women and how satisfied they were with angiosxanner quality of these types anbioscanner examinations.

Outline Masquer le plan. This is why timing is considered so important: Look at the heart! In the case of pregnancy, the increased speed of blood flow requires an earlier acquisition that starts when the superior vena cava is opacified vs the opacification of the pulmonary trunk in the general population. Diagnosing cases of PE presents particular challenges, however; pregnancy-related physiological changes have the potential to impair image quality to such an extent that a diagnosis may no longer be possible.
