Embolie Pulmonaire by Lee Ra on Prezi

Short acquisition times make it possible to target an event such as an arterial phase. During CTPA, radiologists and radiographers subjectively evaluate injection quality to check for sufficient contrast angioscanjer of the pulmonary arteries. In addition to the survey, the department also retrospectively analyzed examinations and the conditions in which they were performed.

Moreover, foetuses are especially sensitive to dose. As a result, they proposed adjustment of these four parameters to improve pulmonary arterial contrast enhancement and, therefore, image quality.

The disadvantage is that 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. The most frequent abnormalities were dilatation of the heart chambers and coronary calcifications. Feuillets de Radiologie ; 47 3: Contact Help Who are we? In the following, we will take a closer look at these four parameters.

Voltage affects image quality, particularly when contrast is involved. Access to the full text of this article requires a subscription. Identify all heart abnormalities discovered on chest computed tomography angiographies made for suspected pulmonary embolism PE.


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. As per the Law relating to information storage and personal integrity, you have the right to oppose art ajgioscanner of that lawaccess art 34 of that law and rectify art 36 of that law your personal data.

Quality of CT pulmonary angiography for suspected pulmonary embolus in pregnancy. Conversely, when voltage is increased, the dominant Compton Effect reduces contrast.

Case Report

When PE is suspected, a computed tomography CT scan may be recommended in some countries as a quick response. This reduced quality of CTPA in pregnant women is caused almost entirely by pregnancy related physiological changes that can last for several weeks postpartum.

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. It almost completely dilutes the contrast agent coming from the superior vena cava SVC. Journal page Archives Contents list. Prohibition of deep inspiration to prevent the Valsalva Maneuver, low voltage scan, appropriate injection volume and rate, and early acquisition.

Angioscanner pulmonaire in English with examples

Pulmonary CT angiography protocol adapted to the hemodynamic effects of pregnancy. With the improved diagnostic image quality, PE could also potentially be ruled out faster allowing patients to possibly be discharged sooner and given peace of mind. Results showed that very few institutions had a specific protocol and levels of satisfaction varied widely.


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.

When voltage is decreased, the photoelectric effect dominates and contrast increases. This remarkable speed means that time is now also a key factor in pulmonary imaging.

Over-diagnosis may also result in treatments that might be dangerous for the unborn child and the mother.

Does pregnancy affect vascular enhancement in patients undergoing CT pulmonary angiography? Objective evidence would be when a region of interest ROI placed at the pulmonary artery indicates a density higher than HU. Prise en angiiscanner des principales urgences thoraciques et abdominales durant la grossesse.

Ann Pulmojaire Anesth Reanim. You can move this window by clicking on the headline. With a mortality rate at approximately 25 percent, pulmonary embolism PE is one of the leading causes of maternal death during pregnancy and postpartum. Angioscanner, Embolie pulmonaire, Anomalies cardiaques. Overcoming CT imaging limitations. CTPA for the diagnosis of acute pulmonary embolism during pregnancy.

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