Abstract

Objectives: Pulmonary thromboembolism (PTE) is an emergent disease with high mortality. Wells and revised Geneva scores are commonly used probability scales in PTE diagnosis. Computed tomography pulmonary angiography (CTPA) is the radiological diagnostic method. We aimed to determine computed tomography pulmonary arterial obstruction index ratio (CTPAOIR) which indicates degree and the extent of the thrombotic pulmonary arterial occlusion and compare Wells and revised Geneva scale with CTPAOIR, parenchymal enfarct and pleural effusion.
